1981 Rabasa Derbi Panther Mach 2

First generation Panther Mach 2 from the Spanish brand (based in Barcelona) Rabasa Derbi. Version with 3 gears.

Mythical muscle bike in Spain from back in 1981, before the word BMX had ever been pronounced in south Europe. It weighted a ton, but it was object of desire for thousands of children at that time. It was specially common in the Catalonia region, as Rabasa Derbi was based in Barcelona. Those years were specially good for the motorcycle division of that brand, as Derbi won 8 world road racing championships.
Pictures taken in La Poma Bikepark. The last one shows the bike the way I got it. I sand blasted and powder coated it, and custom made its decals exact to the original ones.
