1980 Schwinn Mag Scrambler

Super Schwinn Scrambler Survivor - REUNITED with brother's bike!

The two guys I got this bike and the blue '80 from bought them from the original owners -- two brothers in Tennessee. I bought the red one, then heard about the second one and that they were a matching pair, so of course I had to keep them together! Reunited at last, and they will always be together now.
-
Very nice survivors, they made it this long, then the blue Scrambler was almost lost by UPS. Several weeks of nail-biting, and I finally got word that it was on its way. Finally it arrived, complete, thank goodness. I really thought it was a goner!
-
I was told by the original owners via the second owners that this is just how the bikes were when bought new. These are 100% original tires, grips, kickstand delete (chrome cover). Rockin' number plates!
-
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

This frame style in 1980 was the "Phantom" model of Scrambler: http://www.trfindley.com/flschwinn_1971 … 80_34.html

Thanks much! When I had a Huffy, this was the bike I wanted, but never had one. I loved (and still do love) the black Phantoms. Those just rock.
