1977 Two Wheeler's Magnum Stroker

Early BMX at it's coolest!

I found this 1977 Two Wheeler's Magnum Stroker at a local yard sale close to my house for $20.00. I brought it home and immediately took pictures to document the "as it was found condition". Disassembled the bike and started the preservation . The frame was rubbed out by hand using two stage compound and polish(yes it's the original paint), dipped an OA bath on the sprocket and forks in Oxalic Acid (notice the forks on this bike, Two Wheeler's tubular Pro forks), the Ashtabula stem and cranks were cleaned, the Two Wheeler's box bars were cleaned and waxed to remove the chalky residue, the rims were scrubbed using simple green, followed by using a scotch bright pad on the outer edge to clean them up, front wheel bearings were replaced, coaster brake was rebuilt, all bearing re-greased, and put the bike back together. I used some survivor black MKS pedals I had, the pads I also had, the grips are new, and added some new Cheng Shin C-183 2.125 tires front and rear.

I can't believe I found this bike. I can give you the history of this bike because it used to be mine. You have done an excellent job restoring it. Looks like it did when I bought it back in 1977. Very glad to see it again.big_smile

Are you serious? This was your bike as a kid? What's the history? How sure are you that it's yours? IF so, this is incredible!

Re: 1977 Two Wheeler's Magnum Stroker

This was my bike when I was a kid. I had it up until about a couple of years ago when I made the decision that I still regret to get rid of it. I bought this bike when I was 11 years old ant loved it. The reason I can tell it is the same one is the yellow sticker that has an address on it. I grew up in Cypress and that bike shop on Walker St. Was right near my house. I'm pretty sure I paid $120 dollars for it brand new. At one point I had fixed it up for one of my kids but he didn't really like it that much. After that it just sat in my garage then my backyard until I got rid of it. Whoever sold it to you made up the story about finding it in a shed. Once again so glad to see what you have done with it....looks great. Sorry it took so long to reply but haven't checked this website in a while. If you would like to e mail directly my email is andyg66@ sbcglobal.net.
