The Whiskeytown Racer was introduced as the higher performance companion to the Mountain Goat Deluxe model. Named after the famed Whiskeytown Downhill race, the new model featured a more aggressive geometry. The earliest bikes, such as this one, were fillet brazed while the later bikes switched to the lighter TIG welding. One of the stand out features of the early bikes was the Henry James fork crown with custom Mountain Goat inlays. This bike is one of the earliest we have seen with the team orange and green paint scheme which really accents the fork crown.
