1982 Pantha Stud

A bit ugly but its all there...

I'm guessing this was manufactured around 81/82... An honest old Stud with pretty much all of its original parts. I purchased it to restore but after a bit of a clean up I cant help but feel it should be left exactly as is! It has the early style frame with the European bottom bracket, very laid back headtube angle, 1" seat post & the large 3/4" tube seat/chain stay's. The thing weighs a ton! The bike still has it's Hanibishi cranks, KKT KMX pedals, Pantha bars, Pantha forks, S/R stem, Araya 7c rims, Sunshine hubs, Dia-comp 890 calliper & pre-bent lever. It has its orginal seat post clamp & a Kashimax seat. Its an unusual colour that I haven't seen on a pantha before, sort of a Coca-Cola colour...
Very cool o'l roughy!

Re: 1982 Pantha Stud

Pretty cool ride but I think the finish is to far gone. Good candidate for a resto. Get some decals made up from the old ones before getting rid of them, and your off to the races.
Cool bike there!

Re: 1982 Pantha Stud

I can remember me and bunch of mates were invited to the Bunnythorpe factory in Palmerstone Nth, where the Pantha factory was. They had a full blown bmx track next to the factory and we were visiting on or way from Wellington or Rex Harrison's bike shop boys from Paraparmumu. This was about 1978,79 and we were traveling to Auckland Easter show as Healing and Pantha had a display for promoting their bikes and they made a track at Western Springs that we raced with another bike shop called Spokes, based in West Auckland. We were promoting the new sport and this bike was probably the better models to come from Pantha after those early days as the Pantha MX1002 was very heavy which had blade forks that were weak and couldn't handle the real pounding from the serious riders :)
