Re: 1975 M&L

Hey Sam good to see you here. We talked over at the cabe website back in '06 or'07 My screen name is odds&sods over there. I have the blue restored M&L with the low frame like Jack in northern California has. Sam found that bike in a thrift store in Texas just how you all see it. It's all OG. That makes 4 that have surfaced now. Sam's Jack's Mine and DRbmxbikes. And By the offer I made to buy yours thee or four years ago still stands.wink

"When I find a part i need for something I am putting together and I have no trust as to weather the part is 30 years old or 30 days old and I'm being charged a price on par with the real genuine and true item. I not only have to question the logic of people with your mind set but the state of the whole hobby in general. That is more to the point why so many people that knew better just walked away. Because they stopped being "OLD" kids bikes and are just kids bikes. Where in all that does the bullshit really lay?"

Re: 1975 M&L

Whole story is this bike cost $7.50 at Goodwill.Couldn't roll it out of the store because the rear wheel wouldn't turn.The original grease(still white)was so dry and caked the hub was froze.There was some ware on the rear tire so it must have been ridden at sometime but not much before being stored.Frame # is 186. and I see yours is in the 700s so M&L must have built at least 1000 frames. DRbmxbikes has one like mine---wonder what the #s are on it?
Jack once said "we should line them up for a photo" that would be cool.
Has anyone checked with local bike shops in Cal. to see if any--oldtimers remember M&L or maybe the Library to see if they have old Phone Books from the 70s?Someone gotta know something about who the M&L builder was---sam

Re: 1975 M&L

Is anyone in the San Fernando Cal area? If so how about going by the Public Library and see if they have a history section with Old phone books and "yellow pages"
If they have 1975 or 76 yellow pages we might get a lead on M&Ls
