1975 Graco MX1000

Bike is missing the tank and number plates but fully original and in decent shape.

Found this bike for pretty inexpensive it looks fully original except for a couple of the platic parts are missing. It needs another hour or two on clean up it was thick with dirt and grime which I think protected the chrome a little clean up went a long way.

That Graco is a nice Bike I saw the first bike built next to my factory in Taiwan. This bike was keeped in secret until it was shipped. This bike is almost the same as the Panda MX 4 shocker. Check it on the P for Panda Bikes on this sight. You are very lucky to have one.

Re: 1975 Graco MX1000

Wow! I haven't seen one of these since I sold mine about 18 yrs ago.
  Couldn't get new Knobbly tyres and the replacements looked far too skinny. The tanks were the first thing to get wrecked....the top of the suspension used to crease the plastic when handlebars were in full lock..... which meant you ended up with a vertical pink stripe on both sides of the red tank.
The bushes went in the pivot of the rear swingarm which meant it travelled further sideways than it did up and down...... BUT HEY ... I was a kid with a bike that had suspension. AMAZIN!

Re: 1975 Graco MX1000

Actually... Just thinking about it... God knows what make mine was. My Da spent ages repainting it and put new stickers etc on it before I got it for Xmas when I was 7/8.
It had drum brakes!????
Drum Brakes? Does anybody know about Graco copies or later models with Drum Brakes?
And It was effing heavy!

Panda had the first drum brakes on our production BMX bikes thats why I had a free wheel on our bikes. 1975 I think Panda was the first BMX to have a free wheel. Graco had coaster brakes on their bikes the ones I saw in their factory.

This also looks like a KMX 750 that was out about the same time.
