1978 AMF Showdown

Very rare AMF 20" wheels, 28 spokes, 76 bendex rear break, mx Troxel banana seat and original front tractor tire..

My mom bought this bike in 1978 for me at Mongamry Wards for Christmas. I rode it for a few years in California. then i put it up in the garage for a few more. Then one day we were going on a family trip to my aunt house in MO. So i decided to bring my Schwinn king sting for me and this showdown for my little cuzens to ride. Thay loved the showdown .so I left it there for them.
 Two years go  .. I git this phone call its my aunt. she said " are you going to git you bike out of my barn? Its been there since you left it. I said ok! [Not knowing what bike it was]  So a week later  there a package she sent me . ITS THE SHOWDOWN!
WOW! the day was like that 1978 Christmas again.. So I clean the bike up put a new 20x3" rear tire on it.  been riding it to the coffee shop once a week.. I love this bike
