1976 CYC Bike advertisment and kit

Posted in 1976 on August 12, 2011 by Racer

This is an advertisement showing CYC’s first bike.  It was sold as a kit or in parts.  It was the same bike as the AAA Rascal. So it would  be interesting to know if CYC was making it for them or vice versa. I still haven’t heard who welded all those CYC’s. This was from an October 1976 issue of a BMX Magazine. Man hard to believe BMX Magazines dated back that far.

The first version of what would become one of the most iconic bikes of a generation. It would also be the birth of the largest bike company the world has ever known.
