1999 Schwinn Pro Stock SE
I had no intention of buying another bike yesterday... but I stumbled upon it on the local Craigslist and ended up buying it the same day!
Since I'm not a Schwinn guy (this is my first Schwinn bike), I don't know a whole lot about this bike. But the price was right (and I REALLY wanted the 32H Araya Super 7X wheels), so I shelled out the cash and brought it home! I purchased this bike on June 14, 2012 from its original owner. He raced it for one season (circa 2003), and then hung it in the garage for the better part of the last decade.
From the very little research that I've done on this frame, I found that it was "made and used for the 1999 Schwinn Pro-mo Cycle Maddness Sales. It was sold as just a frame. The only official PR about the SE is the Cycle Maddness Sale flyers showing the yellow one as a Frame Only. The Pro-Stock (SE) was never listed in the main Schwinn catalogs as it was made for just the Schwinn Cycle Maddness Sales Event (http://genesbmx.createforumhosting.com/schwinn-prostock-se-t341.html)".
