1978 Team Rampar

This is the Unicorn that I have been looking for at least 20 years. This is the bike that made me discover the BmxMuseum. My dad bought me an Nos ‘78 Team Rampar frame that had sat on a shelf for 3 years at Five Points Bike Shop in El Paso, Texas in 1981. It was a nickel frame just like the one I am listing now. I assembled it with a lot of Huffy Dorcy and old Sears road bike parts. I rode it and raced it for three years until my cousin asked me to borrow it one day, and I never saw it again. I would look constantly on EBay or here in the museum for a replacement but they are extremely rare. I found this one on EBay last December at 3:00 a.m. and I couldn’t hit the “Buy It Now” fast enough. I assembled it pretty quick with parts that I had been collecting for the build even though I didn’t have the frame yet.
