Not a clue and that draws me to it. The European models are rare over here. Looks like it could be a BMX style bike with a banana bike seat and sissy bar. Is there a cross bar on the handlebars?

Reminds me of some of the bikes I saw on the Australian muscle bike forums.

I’ll put it up to the experts. See if they know anything about it

They call them dragsters down under.
That has some real cool parts!

Reminds me of the Yamaha bikes sold over here mid 70s but cooler. Looks like front and rear suspension as they had but drum brakes front and rear is unique
Seat is definitely out of place. Closer picture might show it cobbled in place.

I’d have to have it if the price was right. Nice and shitty just the way I like mine :lol:

Edit: yami had different tubes otherwise very similar my opinion

If the price was right???

Clearly the rear end is like the one you found. I'd dare to claim, they come from the same manufacturer.

Pricing is too personal in my opinion. If it’s like a bike you had in your youth then pay what you’re comfortable with. Chances are it’s cheaper than regret.

If it’s less than a dinner out I buy it.

I can’t tell you what it’s worth not knowing what it is. I posted it asking in one Facebook group. I’ll try another. See if it gets identified.

If you bought it already then who cares. Ride the pee pee out of it

If it is it’s a closely guarded secret because all I found was road bikes so I assumed the owner painted it on. Like the guys that put Gary Fisher on their Huffy :D

It's far away from me, so I need to pay more than a diner out, just to go pick it up. Hence the question.....

As for the head badge, this is as much as I can zoom in on the photo. Does it ring a bell?

Cheers

Magura :)

Nah I tried that myself. Frustrating because it’s a very cool bike and I wish I could find out more about it.

Your bizarre bike is related to a ‘olmo forestal’. I got that answer on one of the banana bike groups. That led me to another brand/model that looks promising. saltafoss 20 cross
If you find one of these with the drum wheel mags (cast wheels) we need to talk!

And the olmo model that helped me find it. Monoshock is what they used to call it with yamaha brand (aka lead in the gas tank)

Reminds me of the Huffy Mono-Shock.
The Huffy had a huge gusset that gave three shock mounting positions and if I recall my ride on one the handling was a bit weird. Looked for a pic that was decent and that would post here but was unsuccessful.

Wow! This thread is forming up nicely since the last time I checked. Love all these classics. So many I’ve never knew about and some I do remember, keep em coming.

Mono Shock < Huffy really used that monicker? I thought Yamaha had that name trademarked back then. I had the 2nd year Monoshock production model from Yamaha.

My older brother bought it new in 1975. I bought it from him in 1980.
1975 Yamaha MX 400B

Forgot about the Huffy mono. All these sprung 20s had to weight a ton. That one with mags must be a beast
DJ I had an F9 kawi about the same time. Preston/Petty fenders, Lucas light, Bill Wirges pipe, wiseco piston. Ran the pee pee out of that and sold it in a crate. I remember those 400s being a handful too. 2 stroke single peeked with the mx 500 monsters. 350 and up would pull your arms out of their sockets in second gear launches :cool:

Continued off topic.
kronk I recall plenty of great stoke from you on the fatty forum. Wish you’d share some here. Fatty season coming back to the north east here shortly. Deer season opens I try to get in at least one beach ride

Hmm, Olmo is another of the big Italian guys.
Wonder if those big Italian brands all made muscle bikes?

It doesn’t seem to be something I can research well here. I know Australians called them dragster bikes but my searches for the same come up empty. I also search chopper bicycles after the Raleigh name and get nothing. I see the name Edwards come up as a chopper clone but I can’t find any. Frustrating because I’d like to see more

I have seen a few of these around but I always thought they were Raleigh built .

Øglænd DBS Tomahawk. Norwegian I understand. Seems most of Europe never took to the muscle bike fad. This is a very cool looking ride!

Magura I finally came across a European muscle bike. Jetstar. German made it seems. Good looking bikes!

First one has a real Iverson vibe to it

Hmm, those I've never seen around here, nor in Germany.
Any idea how long they were in business?

I do not but I will keep my eyes open. Made in Germany ≠ sold in Germany. I did also see some folders under that brand. Frames look very similar. Top tube is added for the muscle bike version.

Now that one looks familiar.
Those were very popular here in the '70
