1980 Schwinn Scrambler Before and After

Well its not my best work nor is it really anything that special but since I love bringing the dead back to life, I thought I would share a before and after shot of my latest build project.  I picked up the frame from a member here on BMX Museum and I originally intended to make a tribute to an old friend of mine's bike.  I soon after picked up a better frame for the job so I just putthis one together with spare parts.  Its obviously not 100% accurate but regardless I think it turned out pretty decent.  At least it is once again a BMX bike!

How did you make it stand up without a stand?


Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

That bike was all tweaked out! lol  You did that frame some justice and I would like to personally thank you in its behalf.

hottubfan: If you want that seat I might be able to track it down at no charge.

Thanks man!  Now I am just hoping to find it a good home! Hoping someone will take it off my hands.  I have too many bikes still.
