Additional Notes

My first real BMX bike. This bike was delivered in Sept 1975. It is original finish with a very light dust of pitting and mostly original parts. The bars have been repowdered as the original finish was stripped many years ago. The tires, seat and pedals were NOS but I do have the original seat in very good condition and the original pedals in very poor condition. The sprocket was not NOS but is the original type. I used many different sprockets when I rode the bike and no longer have the original. I switched out the stem very early in owning the bike. I used a generic double-clamp stem. I also ran a Redline fork that came from a broken Webco. Both stem and fork are still in my possession....due to the same compulsive behaviors that made me keep all of my original parts! :)
