Re: 1976 Champion Schwerma

Doug Schwerma was the original founder of CHAMPION motorcycle frames in Hayward, CA from the 70's, and jumped into the BMX market in 1975. He made these frames for a few years, until his untimely death in '77/78. After that, Red Line bought out what was left behind and the rest is history. It is speculated that there were only 300 or so of these frame made, so they’re hard to find or come by.  These are highly collectable and sought after by the older collectors. These frames are truly a work of art and the welds are clean and tight, not to mention the clean, classy style of the frame considering it’s age. To this day, I've have never heard of one cracking or failing in any way. So when someone say’s, Schwerma CHAMPION, it’s defiantly one of the very first CHAMPION’s

Re: 1976 Champion Schwerma

Does anyone know about what these are worth? I have one of these schwerma Champions. The frame # is less than 100.After reading these posts i'M SO GLAD i'VE KEPT MINE ALL THESE YEARS. I grew up in Hayward and this was the bomb bike to have in that day. I faintly remember Brent Patterson riding for Champion before the development of patterson frames.
AND your right these frames were UNDISTRUCTABLE.  will post pics of mine later.

Re: 1976 Champion Schwerma

Actually Champion started in 1968 in Hayward ca. making flat track motorcycle frames.  Kenny Roberts,Chris Carr,Ricky Graham, Steve Ecklenud were some of his early riders. I thought Redline and Champion merged after Doug passed away, I thought it was Linn Kastan (Redline) and the guy that owns Champion Crane that merged and bought it from the auction cheap.
