I picked it up it up at a car show last summer. It was mostly complete. I found someone who had the parts it was missing nos. The tank, rear fender, some of the number plates and the handle grips. After a lot of cleaning this is how it turned out.
Original graco tires and rims including the 22" front wheel.
I have another one but it's missing all the plastics and the seat.
I know this is an old post,but I think I saw this exact bike at Ann Arbor this past spring.
Great job cleaning it up,I have a red mx1000. I just ordered the tank for it,now I just have to either repair or replace the front fender and chain guard.
Me too,bought a tank. Don't need a seat.
Aside from the tank being missing and the front fender being busted mine is in good shape. Maybe one day I'll find a fender,if not I can rebuild it.
Now if there was some magic way to restore the original tires.
