1976 Panda MX

1976 Panda MX

Early Panda MX non-brake bridge Looptail from Concord, California (Northern Cali)...

1976 Panda MX with no brake bridge, integrated seat clamp, but no screwed in bb cups. I bought this frame off of Ebay and actually picked it up locally. It was in good structural condition but the paint was toast. I painted it a metallic black because I don't really care much for the original early Panda metallic burnt orange and metallic blue colors. The frame came out looking really nice and it is a great rider. It has a long (for vintage BMX bikes) 20" top tube and a very laid back seat tube angle which gives a roomy cockpit for my 6'2, 220 lb carcass. It is built with the following parts:
1976 MX Non-brake bridge Frame
NOS Chrome Stamped Ashtabula Forks
CEBE Double Clamp Stem
VDC Fluted Bars
OURY Motocross Grips
FEMCO Steel Wheels w Redline rear Hub and Bendix Coaster
Cheng Shin Knobbies
Troxel Quilted Seat
190 mm Stamped Ashtabula Cranks
NOS Red Rat Traps
Re-Chromed Three Arrow 46T Chainwheel

Re: 1976 Panda MX

Very strange geometry.... Kool as all h*ll though. How does it ride with that aggressive seat tube angle?

Re: 1976 Panda MX

Thanks guys...Actually, this bike rides pretty nice. Obviously when you are sitting on it, it is real light on the front end and makes for an easy wheely machine. It is a very comfortable easy riding bike...not all cramped up like most vintage BMXr's which usually have 17-18" long top tubes.

Wheelie machine!! Looks great!

Had a Panda bitd but mine was a either a Charger or Pacer with the double gusset. Still had the ultra laidback post. Loved that bike until some slug stole it from my garage.
