    1981 Pro Cruiser

This bike is part of the MOMBAT collection and is NOT FOR SALE.  Please check out our Vintage Bikes for Sale page to see all of our current offerings.

One of the bikes that bridged the gap between BMX bikes and mountain bikes.  The frame design was based on frame that Don Koski fabricated from electrical conduit and a Schwinn Varsity frame.  Mert Lawwill had Terry Knight of Oakland build the frames.  The bikes sold for about $500 new and were made from 1978 though 1982 (approximate run of 600 bikes).  This is a "B" series frame for drum brakes.  Lawwill designed bar and stem are a couple of the standout parts on this bike.
