1979 Norco Duster

1979 NORCO

1979 Norco.  VIN # on bike is D9 1037585.  If someone has a breakdown on this VIN please let me know.

I pulled this bike out of a dumpster in about 1984 and put it in dads storage building.  I thought that the fish gill gussett was cool looking!

As I put this bike together, I realized that the geometery was crazy!  NOT the best rider but a unique bike to add to the growing collection.

Had the frame / forks / bars powdered in Red.
NOS NORCO PAD SET !
AME TRI grips
Original mid to late 1970's STEM (gooseneck)
Mongoose stamped cranks and chainwheel
Black rat trap pedals
Generic seat and post
Suntour post clamp
Black Skyway Tuff II's
Reproduction Moto X knob tires

Great looking bike! I remember selling these BITD. I am pretty sure they were called Norco Duster.
