1975 Dan Gurney Eagle Deluxe

Hard Tail Double Loop

When I was ten This is  how I rolled. In the picture its 1975 and it looks like I'm not happy hanging out with my sister. The bike came new with MX60 wheels but I traded them (stupid kid)  Thanks to the museum I was able to find all the parts needed for the build . This was my first bike, now I have it again. out of my ten various  bikes its my favorite . Well sense this build I had the opportunity to talk to Alex Gurney at Laguna Seca. During our conversation you know the bike came up and I had to know if his Dad knew about them being built. He told me that his father knew and was involved with the bikes, Alex still has one, its a suspension model. I have heard different stories a bought his knowledge of them being built. by the way Alex won his race that day.

when it comes time to die,be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death,so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way,sing your death song and die like a hero going home. chief aupumut mohican 1725

Re: 1975 Dan Gurney Eagle Deluxe

IMO, there are only certain bikes that look right with a banana seat. This is one. Really diggin those mags too. Vintage
