1976 Champion Schwerma

1976 Champion Schwerma

Nor Cal 70's Racer

I recently picked up this Schwerma to replace the one I just sold. This frame was found and sold by Darren Chan. When Darren found it the frame was covered with orange paint. The guy who bought it spent a lot of time stripping the paint off and hand polishing the frame retaining the original nickel finish. The finish is far from perfect but shows well. The Hank & Frank brake adapter and frame stickers are originals. The fork is an original 5" Speedo that was beat to hell and was cleaned up and re plated. I figure if I never polish the frame or fork it will lose the shine and be just the way I like it. I also got the uncut Redline Victory Bars and Redline Proline Double Clamp Stem from the same guy. With a few other parts I had lying around I was able to piece together a very nice Nor Cal style 76 Schwerma Race Bike!
Thanks to Alex Douglas for the smoking deal on the frame, fork, bars and stem.
