1979 Webco Inc.

Original Chrome.

Another dirty old Webco that I cleaned up and finished off. The frame is OG chrome and I noticed it was much easier to clean than the usual nickel Mongoose frames I'm familiar with. It's actually the only chrome bike I own. The parts are: 1st generation nickel non-drilled Redline forks, media blasted raw Motomags, Ashtabula crank and stem, black KKT Rat Traps, Mesinger saddle, Three Arrow sprocket and Mongoose bars with Hunt Wilde clear grips. It's a nice sturdy rider and feels just about the same as my black Webco. The only difference is the Redline forks are a little lighter than the Webco square forks so, it's easier to wheelie on this one!

Re: 1979 Webco Inc.

How many digits are in the serial #'s on this?  Any Letters or just #'s?  Trying to identify a frame and I think it's a webco.

Re: 1979 Webco Inc.

Sorry about the delay, I just saw this question tonight... This one has six numbers: 112340.  It's very interesting too because most production numbers will start at 100 or 10000 or 100000

This one is 1234 essentially.

The guy who sold it to me said it was a fairly rare version (being chrome) and that he felt someone well known may have raced it or that is was made specially for them by Webco because of the serial numbers.

Honestly, I personally have no clue. I think many Webcos also have a "W" somewhere in the SN's, but few with numbers only like this one. To this day, I have never heard anyone make sense of the Webco serial numbers. If anyone did or does, they would be famous. People have been trying figure it out for decades and there seems to be no consensus as of yet.... sad

Here a shot of this Webco's SN:

Re: 1979 Webco Inc.

Seems like the 70's bikes are dying off in interest/popularity... Especially the early and mid 70's bikes... Oh well, I'm bumpin' to keep them thumpin'!!! Haha! wink
