1976 Kenny Roberts Grand National

76 Kenny Roberts, ACS Z-Rims


This is my childhood bike. I bought the frame used in 1980, and the parts mainly from Mr. Bicycle in Fairfield Ca. Serial number 109. I just replaced (late 2006) the tires, seat and seat post with NOS parts. I think this is a  76 Kenny Roberts?
The frame was originally sold by Jim's Bike Shop in Richmond Ca.
The 'older' picture is from a few weeks ago, before I replaced some parts with NOS.

Re: 1976 Kenny Roberts Grand National

Cool. Never seen one before. And, I, too, was thinking it looks Sentry like. I think the OG ad for the Sentry has Kenny Roberts in with Brent Patterson. Very cool.

Re: 1976 Kenny Roberts Grand National

Great lookin bike.  Pretry interesting bike.

Look at the geometry, low top tube, short seat post tube.   I can't recall ever seeing a bike that old with that layout.  Everything had horizontal top tubes and the entire frame was taller.  Chainstays into rear dropout is very compact.

The geometry on that frame is layed out like a new school.  Be interesting to measure it up and compare.

I'd say whoever designed that frame had their shit together.


Everything's a rider and most of its for sale or trade.

I'm a HUGE motorcycle racing fan and had no idea there was a Kenny Roberts named bike.  VERY COOL:D
