Re: 1978 Robinson

The bike looks great! Nice color combo. I also like the brake setup never seen one like that. And the bike looks like it weighs 10lbs.

Re: 1978 Robinson

Awesome Robinson. Are those decals custom? I just finished a '93 SST rebuild(it's in the museum) and I'm waiting on some custom white decals.

Re: 1978 Robinson

i just found this
1978
June 2, 2009

Just a few tidbits from Robinson Racings first year, 1978. The advertisement of Gary Renteria is the first ad in a magazine for Robinson it appears. It was in the October 1978 issue of “Bicycle Motocross Action� .  The press release shows the first generation Robinson.  It does not have a R gusset stamp yet. This is the first Robinson frame. The first bike the Factory team was mounted on was LRV frames/forks. Most of the team came from LRV.
