What a cool bike! I used to have one as a kid. As I remember it was EXTREMELY heavy and the rear end would flex from side to side. Some nice memories there.........Enjoy

Re: 1976 Dan Gurney Monoshock Eagle

never owned one but do recall the kids jumping these things around 78-79, must have been hand-me-downs from their older brothers.


Looking for 85-86 Rl 20 II frame in rider condition. Elina flyte tech eat in white used rider condition.

Re: 1976 Dan Gurney Monoshock Eagle

What effect did the spring/shock have? How did it effect racing speed and jumping/Arial ability?
