Surely the Grifter is missing an essential accessory: the ripped piece of cardboard selotaped on the seat-stays for that badass moto sound... 8)


I did that :oops: :oops: It was 1978 though, am I forgiven? :lol: :lol:

W-O-W this is a trip down memory lane for me, thanks so much for posting....the Bomber is just an old time Klunker really isn't it.....

I hadn't thought about it before, nor have I seen one since about 1980 :shock:

Nice one dude :wink:

The bomber is actually a really nice riding position, the wide bars and lean back sprung seat make it ideal for cruising 8)

Sorry to reanimate an old thread but would anyone know what size seatpost the Bomber takes? I have an old frame I want to restore - and it looks like it's probably a 25.2 post needed, but I'm not sure...
