1976 Rampar R5

original bike right down to the tires and grips

i picked up these 2 rampars from the original owner who had bought them for his daughters but they where to heavy for the girls so they just hung in his garage til now. I have all the recipts owners manuls and warrantee info for 3 bikes since his son had one to but ruined it. The #1 bike is really clean with only a very slight crack in the gas tank on one side where the forks rub on it.It has the original cross bar pad, both bike have all original parts. the bike's cost $117 new in 1977.

Sweet Find! You even have those front plates that snap in to the forks! I forgot about those, mine would fly off every time I landed hard from a jump, I was constantly adjusting the tabs, thanks for posting.

Re: 1976 Rampar R5

I loved that bike!  I have to find a pic of me on mine back in 1977.  As soon as I can find it, I will post.  Thanks for the memories!  Reliving my childhood, one bike at a time!

there is a springer rampar on ebay right now but it's in the wrong section so most folks aren't going to see it:

Was going to get one of these but chose a non-suspension bike in 1977.  These were so cool and looks like I'll be searching for one.

Thanks for the flashback!

A friend of mine had a 'shock' bike as we used to like to call them many years ago but with a yellow tank and fenders.  These sure bring back memories.

Wheres the motor?


1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
   2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
   3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Nice pair!! I have a Spartan Moto Bike by Rampar that I just finished. I would submit the images but I do not know how. I have tons of NOS parts for these as well if anyone out there is restoring them.

Re: 1976 Rampar R5

Nice bikes!  My friend had one, that thing was the heaviest out of all of our bikes.  Every time we built a ramp we would have him jump it first to make sure it was strong enough.  smile

Re: 1976 Rampar R5

One of my old friends had one of these bikes and we used to have a pit we would ride down into and come shooting out of the other end,kinda like a bowl and he would always go about 4 feet higher than us because he would jump down on the bike to pre-load the suspension so it would shoot him up higher than any of us,he also got wrecked a lot more too,but what a cool bike.
