Looks like mostly junk except for the alloy mags and the tire on that one nylon mag looks interesting, comp II maybe but I'd bet it's rotted to crap

I have a 26" balloon tire cruiser from the 60 with the same style frame as the black bike in the last pic

Lester mags, and the plastic ones are probably safelite, if they clean up good people do buy them.... $5-20 for the lot and you would be ok.

The mags are cool. I would love to find some of those wheels. Any of them!
The black bike is called a Mossberg MX.
This example belongs to Sodbuster.

Rear triangle on the first one tells me that it's a Team Murray dept. store bike. The fork doesn't look right for a Murray though.

The red one is probably nothing but it looks really cool.

Is it called that because of the "mossberg" growing on the seat? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I'd be interested in the Mossberg. I restored one but sold it to 1966BMX because I kind of snaked it out from under him...unintentionally.

I'd grab that red one too. It's too weird to pass up. It might be a Gobby or something like that.

I always snag mags. Someone wants them.


Glen...hit me up about your Lester needs. I have some nice examples of most styles. I keep thinking I'll use them on something and never have.

Although none of the bikes would ever be termed a score, there is a reason to take each of them. Grab them all.

A Gobby?? I looked on the place I surf too, and I surf a lot, not on waves either LOL and I didn't see anything about Gobby posted on there (IMG:style_emoticons/default/scratch_one-s_head.gif) ?
