1975 Matthews MS1

My restored 75 Matthews MS1.

I found this bike in North Carolina and the owner said that he got it from a shore town in Delaware. The bike was pitted and rusted very badly from the salty air. I restored this bike at my buddies body shop over the winter. The wheels are NOS Femco's. The original wheels need a lot of work yet. I also still have to make up the decals. Looking for the extremely elusive MS1 seat! Cheers, -E!
Thanks to Monster-Robot for sending me the decals for free! Completes the restoration!

Great save! Just an awesome piece of history!!!  cool


I'm always looking for early Mongoose frames with the lower gusset, 75-76 or early 77. And anything Ashtabula!!!
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR OG SCRAMBLERS.
SEARCHING FOR A PRE-1983 SCHWINN SCRAMBLER THAT WAS PURCHASED FROM THE OUTDOOR STORE IN RED WING,MN THAT STILL HAS THE OUTDOOR STORE STICKER ON IT. ANY COLOR COMBO WILL DO.
