1975 Ashtabula

1975 Ashtabula

76'Ashtabula in fire engine red! Red was a rare color on this bike. Most Ashtabulas I've seen where either black or silver.

76' Ashtabula with same named components, Gooseneck, forks and cranks! Frame was OG red then bombed red to stop rust? Lot's of finger prints and rust showing so I sandblasted and powdered the frame red.
Lester mags and cheng knobbies. Rip saw sprocket and box bars along with correct seat post and clamp. Troxel sadlle added to match the time period! Waffle grips too!

Lovin' it!!!

Everything is just right on that bike!  Your Ashtabula parts look great with the white lettering.  Great job....as usual!

Re: 1975 Ashtabula

Totally blown away! I'm speechless! Great job... coolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcoolcool


I'm always looking for early Mongoose frames with the lower gusset, 75-76 or early 77. And anything Ashtabula!!!
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR OG SCRAMBLERS.
SEARCHING FOR A PRE-1983 SCHWINN SCRAMBLER THAT WAS PURCHASED FROM THE OUTDOOR STORE IN RED WING,MN THAT STILL HAS THE OUTDOOR STORE STICKER ON IT. ANY COLOR COMBO WILL DO.

I started with a Huffy Pro Thunder back on 12-25-79. My second frame was the Ashtubula frame and fork. Used my Huffy fork.... Wow, has that started something! The memories... huh?smile

Re: 1975 Ashtabula

When I logged in your ashtabula was right there.  Wow that bike brings back some cool memories for.  In the later 70's my buddy rides up on this tank of a bike, as I remember it was orange(probably been repainted) and it looked tough but it was heavy, So cool, I don't think there are many out there.  Congratulations on having it!
