Re: 1975 Matthews Monoshock

That's nice but a 73 would pre-date every production bmx mono frame and hardtail frame. Maybe it's a 74 or a 75 maybe...

Re: 1975 Matthews Monoshock

I based it on the other ones listed here. Of course that could result in some variance

Re: 1975 Matthews Monoshock

Late '75 or early '76.  The reverse dropouts make it earlier than mid-76.  The single hole on the shock mount makes it later than mid-75.  Could possibly be an LRV (parent company of Matthews) made Takara in which the fork could possibly be correct for that bike. 

LRV was pretty loose and free with the parts they used and to whom they distributed.

Nice find in any case.

Re: 1975 Matthews Monoshock

If the fork is original, the bike is likely a Takara.
