1977 Schwinn Competition Scrambler

1977 Schwinn Competition Scrambler

Awesome Chromoly race frame with incredible fillet brazing. No chain guard tabs...Team Frame?

Beautiful restoration with striking candy red finish. This frame is 100% chromoly and was only sold as a frame by virtue of no chain guard tabs. The complete had tabs. The paint is near perfect except on the left rear dropout, which has some missing paint. The frame is in excellent condition but the head tube is a bit ovalized, which isn't unusual for these frames. The headset fits with an aluminum can shim. Drop outs and seat tube are both perfect. The rims are beautiful near mint FEMCO's with Shimano coaster brake. Seat is a rare padded Kashimax. Grips are Oakley cams.
I originally purchased the frame, seat post, and clamp from a friend. It was purple and needed to be restored. I carefully stripped it and prepped it for paint. I decided to paint it a candy red and it came out better than I expected. I usually paint my own frames and this was no different. It  has a long top tube, about 20", so with a relaxed seat tube angle it is a roomy rider. Really is an underrated bike and I will miss it. SOLD
