1975 Merida MC 100 Motocross

NOS 75 Merida MC 100

This bike was still tied together with twine from the factory when I got it, I didn't even clean the 36 year old grease/dirt off it yet. I did go ahead and assemble though since the original box was gone and the remaining packaging was falling apart, it still has the original stickers stuck to the tires and I want to leave those intact.

I'm looking for a clean 1975 Mongoose (long) frame, and a nice original finish Mongoose Two/Four

It actually has a yellow tank, which is why you don't see it on the bike, it just looks retarded. If I can find a black one I will stick it on there.

Great bike!!
I have an orange one that I received for Christmas back in the 70's. Guess you could say it was one of my all-time favorite gifts since I still have it.
The year I got it Huffy Trail bikes were the rage. Dad  got me the MC100 instead... Thanks Dad!
This is the only other I've ever seen.
Thanks for sharing!!

Now this is pretty cool.
