obviously new Magna bikes are mostly big box store junk, but what is the story on this old Magna? I snagged it up at goodwill, because it was ready to ride at $15, but is it anything special? Was Magna a respectable bike during these days? Serial is "40304923" before paint and a "2" after paint: 1972 maybe?




FYI, the baby seat in the background came on the bike.

I know nothing about Magna bikes...but it looks very nice.
That's not a lot of work, to make this bike better.

I don't think your roadie was made by the same Magna company as the current department store bikes. At any rate, that is a very nice looking lugged frame. You can ride it as is or make a fixie or hybrid with it.

He's right, not the same Magna!~That frame looks really familiar, like a Panasonic? Anyway it was probably made for them.....Probably a good frame!

That is a great looking bike. I like the head tube logo. It does look lower end because of the cottered cranks and the stamped dropouts. It will work fine because it is in good condition.
