The other day I picked up a Diamindback Expert roadie on the bay with a similar flouro tiger stripe paint job. I always wanted a Diamondback Axis mtb years ago but this is the closest I'll get I think :) As an aside note Diamondback road bikes were previously Centurions.

There are ways to make it a fixie but an anchor would be my choice

Apparently 94 ish Stumpjumper. IMO it's neither old enough or new enough to be interesting but it might be someone's cup of tea.
