Full Version: DG Monoshock ID Help

Hi,

My Mom (vintage id sandimom) was given an old DG Monoshock by a co-worker probably around 10 or so years ago. It's been sitting in her basement ever since. I thought I'd throw some pics up and see if I could get some help identifying it. Based on my limited research, I believe it's a 1975 or 1976 DG Monoshock Eagle. I was born in 1976, so this bike was around way before I started racing, hence I don't know much about it. See below pics and help me correctly ID it.

Also, I am fairly curious about how rare of a bike this is. If you have any input, I'd appreciate it.

Interesting side story about this bike, the original owner (my Mom's old co-worker's son) lived next door to Dan Gurney and was given this bike by Dan personally. Cool stuff!

Thanks,

Tim Eiring

That is a "Dan Gurney" not a "DG". It is also awesome. Love that it still has Schwinn forks. The seat struts are classic. Prepare to be hounded.

Thanks Ken! Hope all's well.

Can anyone confirm that this is a Dan Gurney Monoshock Eagle?

Thanks,
