Anyone have any information on these?

I'm working on a little project... Any help regarding these super rare frames would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

This is the only information I have found so far:

That should read "super rare frame". From what I've ever heard about it there was only one made. And that's a pic of it.

I hear what you're saying Sod, but I asked about the Racers X / Super X Monoshock as well, which I'm assuming would mean there was more than just the Monogoose Monoshock if indeed only one was made...

Plus, the Racers X / Super X stuff was out as early as '75 as far as I can tell... I'm thinking there has to be more than one Monoshock of either one or both. :Idunno:

I have another picture of Stormin Norman jumping, but he was riding a different bike then. I know the goose monoshock was planned to be released as i have few preliminary "bmx products" part numbers for them.

If Mel is still around, I’d love to hear more about this and his connections with Norman! (Couldn’t loaf Mel’s pic of SN)
