MISC:Beacon Cycle U.S. - Cobra BMX Austrailia posted by: sdd122 on 10/4/2007 at 7:00:54 PM
I have an early 80's ?Austrailian? Cobra BMX bike imported to the states by Beacon Cycle. I know B.C. imported bikes, especially French road bikes to the states in the 70's-80's, but does anyone know more info about these bmx bikes? The bike has the Cobra Stickers, but a Beacon Cycle head badge. Cobra BMX bikes were made by the Toowoomba Bicycle Company in Austrailia. I'm just trying to verify that Beacon imported these from Austrailia, or if not, then where?

Thanks,
Scott

          RE:MISC:Beacon Cycle U.S. - Cobra BMX Austrailia posted by Dean Grace on 12/4/2009 at 10:03:19 PM
The Cobra thats like a Diamond back would be either a Team Cobra or a Pro Cobra.
They where made from Cromo tubing and where good bikes.
The Frames with the round hole in the front gussets came in 2 models, the Cobra and the Cobra 2.
The Cobra was a direct knockoff of Mongoose bikes and was named accordingly it came with a back pedal/coaster brake heavy duty wheel set or Tuff wheel 2 set with coaster brakes Where as the Cobra 2 was a Freewheel model with cable lugs welded on the toptube of the frame.
Cobra also did a Cobra MXIII which was a total Knockoff of a redline MXII.
No idea if they where exported to the states but that was a bit of info for you.

I had a 1980 or 1981 Black Cobra BMX bike with gold rims. This bike was very cool looking back in the day. I was in to BMX a little, but when I seen this bike in a shop it was just awesome looking. I have yet to find one anywhere on line with the same gold rims. Does anyone remember this style? I ended up selling the bike for 100.00 4 years after I originally purchased it in 1984.

WANTED:Parts for General Hustler Pro L? posted by: Jason on 9/5/2007 at 6:25:48 AM
I have a General Hustler Pro (L?). I got this bike maybe 20 or so years ago. It has been in a garage for about 15 years. Obviously, time has taken its toll. I would like to completely restore it like original (sentimental value). Does anyone know where I can order original parts..stickers, calipers, brake lines, rotor, rear hub, hand grips, etc? Any help would be great!
