1982 MCS Magnum 240

MCS Cruiser. All original chrome,decals and components. These were only made for a couple years in the early 80's (81-83).


I was very fortunate to acquire this MCS cruiser frame and fork in such wonderful condition (Thanks Mike) but finding these MCS Cruiser Bars, Campagnolo BMX Pedals and especially the MCS Seat Clamp was truly a godsend.
I built it up as faithfully as I could with some of my favorite parts for the 2017 Calendar Build Off and to commemorate the 40th anniversary of MCS, one of the early pioneers of BMX.

MCS was known for their quality craftsmanship. They produced some wicked bikes and even made frames and parts for other companies like Hutch,etc.  Some of the most beautiful chrome and welds I've seen to this day!

Many of the parts for this build came from fellow BMX Museum Members. 
Thank you to those who helped me put this one together and allowed some of these parts to relocate.
