1981 Cycle Pro Mity Macho 16

1981 Cycle Pro Mity Macho 16

My first bike all tuned up and ready to roll again.

For some reason my parents held on to this thing all these years.  I went and got it from their garage a few months back so I could build it up for my nephew.  At one point I was going to make it a pit bike so I removed the bars, stem, seat, and seatpost.  Those got lost at some point.  I found replacements, and rebuilt the hubs/coaster brake, bottom bracket, and headset.  I also bought new pads, numberplate, tires, chain, and grips to make it look like it did back in the day.  It has been a lot of fun bringing this thing back to life.  Check out the OG picture of me jumping!  Hope my nephew loves this thing as much as I did.
Not positive on the year, but I am quite certain my Dad bought it for me in 1981.

That is the best "jump" pic I think I have actually seen in the museum!


Yes I will ship to Australia! Always open to Trades.
I ride my bike 6 miles 2 times per day every day.

If I have something I am probably interested in buying another.

Nice Macho!

I did land it many times over.  However, I the original grips on that bike used to slip all the time.  One time in mid air on that very jump, i ripped both grips off and ate it real good.  The new grips are nice and tight, so I don't see the same thing happening to my nephew smile

This bike is sweet.  Love the 16 inch tuffs.  Is the frame steel or chromoly?

Re: 1981 Cycle Pro Mity Macho 16

Judging by the weight I am going to have to say steel

Re: 1981 Cycle Pro Mity Macho 16

yeah, just picked one of these up from another member and it is a tiny tank. So freakin heavy.


Feeling Bossy. Now how about a beat national pro or whitebear cruiser or panda 26 pro-am raider for a new restore project.
