Re: 1979 Quicksilver Type 1a

Is it possible to change the title of this thread?  The bike is actually a Type 1B.  Yeah, I know I'm being pedantic, but this is supposed to be a museum!

I know what you mean, my type 2 was listed as a Quicksilver Thruster!

I don't know who went through and changed all the titles

Without knowing the serial which has a date code in it I'm guessing it was made new in 1980 as VERY VERY few of this model were produced in November/ December 1979 as the main focus was on clearing stocks of the earlier 1a frame kits.

Re: 1979 Quicksilver Type 1a

I assumed that it was made in 1979 as I bought this frame off the neighbour around Sept/Oct 1980 and he had owned it for a while

serial number is 501182M

Beautiful. I'm guessing they drew their inspiration from Mongoose? Front gusset also sorta reminds memof a Torker.
