Hmmmm,never too old too learn!.
Are the fork-legs tubes open under?
And where you base your year on?.

Re: 1979 MCS Magnum XL

Sweet! My first real bike was a Magnum 2000, maybe around '82ish. I cracked the frame, but I still have it. Unfortunately the forks are long gone. The MCS bars and stem went on my JMC, which I'm restoring right now. Your right, these frames are REALLY light!

Re: 1979 MCS Magnum XL

I love these MCS' they had perfect geometry and I believe they were the only bikes that had cro-mo dropouts, they were paper thin but strong as hell. I had one and it was indestructible.

Re: 1979 MCS Magnum XL

Dude, I saw an ad on a PDF file from around 80 that had all the frames, forks, bars, and posts available that year laid out. I gotta find it for ya...

This isn't the ad I mentioned, but it's one from Jan 81 and has your Magnum and Spider frames... scroll all the way to the bottom...

Re: 1979 MCS Magnum XL

Great bike! I had the same 1979 magnum, i bought the frame and fork from my friend jason in 1981 for a whopping $115 bucks! He had purchased it from a bike shop in pompano,fl which was where they were manufactured, should've never sold it.sad

Re: 1979 MCS Magnum XL

I have no idea what year this one is, I raced it back in 82.  Was originally chrome but was painted blue by the time I got it.  My old man gave it away a few years ago.  Sure wish I had it back.

This bike was super light. I think it weighed 16 pounds.

I think only the 79' had those gussets.
