1975 Matthews Monoshock

Matthews survivor

I do not know much history on this bike I purchased it a few weeks back. I had one just like this that I bought with my dad back in 1975 and this is exactly what mine looked like except I had a diff shock. Same color and sprocket everything is aperfect match. Mike at Recycle Bike Shop sold this to me after I told him my story on mine. Mine was stolen as a kid and it took me a year of searching before I found it, what a mess the kid made of it. I still have my frame that needs work and I am trying to find parts to restore it. Thanks to Mike at Recycle Bike Shop I feel like I got back a little part of my life as a kid that was taken.

Re: 1975 Matthews Monoshock

i had that exact bike in VA in 1977.   got ripped off.  would love LOVE to have another.  bought it from Donny Dristy my neighbor at the time in Annandale.  Burbank Rd.  We rode the shit out of our bikes back then.  now i'm 47 and have a kid in college and am riding bikes again.  i'd LOVE LOVE to have my old bike back.
