Re: 1978 Pantha

First bmx bike that broke in half on me was a Pantha , (matt undercoat grey)..They were made in a little place I belive near Feilding..Warkworth? or something like that..HMX500, your pantha would be a 80's model with having the twin front gusset, earlier ones only had one in the middle and I carnt be 100% sure but I think my first one had no gusset..and square legged front forks.


Please check out my bikes in my profile..I'd like to know more about my redline

Re: 1978 Pantha

Bike is cool, car is better!!!  What the He!! is that thang??  Looks like a Mustang at a quick glance.


Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

Re: 1978 Pantha

' This is an '80's model possibly first production model we used spoked wheels with Sunshine hubs. Instead of alloy 'mags'
Cranks are Hanabishi. Handlebars are not original etc

Nice to see it Frank PPP
