1978 CYC Stormer MX

Not much of a "history" with me, as I got this bike last year on eBay. I had a 1978 Stormer growing up and I always loved that bike, but mine was red with Motomags and box bars. I really can't tell enough about this bike from websites to be able to tell how much is original, how much is era-correct, and how much is recent. I can say that the frame is original nickel finish and the stickers all look original and correct, though a bit worn. The bike rides on 20" Tuf Wheel I's equipped with a Bendix 76 coaster brake, 80's era blue gumwall tires, blue unstamped V-bars and a double gooseneck that I'm not familiar with. The anodized blue seat clamp, blue fluted seatpost, and blue race seat also seem to be early 80's additions. The 18.5" top tube length make it a little tight to for me to ride, but my kids love it!

My first real BMx bike was a red '78 Stormer.  I love them!  Nice COOL old school!

Always looking for Cook Bros. stuff, vintage SE stuff,  MCS 6 bolt Super stems,  and Race Inc. Leading Edge/Cycle Pro/BMX innovations 20" forks.  All NOS or in very nice condition.
