1975 Champion Schwerma

Purchased frame and fork, from the original owner, who got it for Christmas in 1975. 

I purchased this frame, with Redline fork, from the original owner, who got it for Christmas in 1975.  His uncle was an attorney for Dough Schwerma, so it came directly from the factory.  The original owner took the fame and fork to be re-plated and it was stripped, but then the plater went out of business.  It sat around for years before I purchased it from him.  I had it re-plated and am not super happy with the work because they partially polished the machining marks out of the head tube (a real bummer).  It is built in the style I saw in pictures of it from '76ish, but I couldn't resist upgrading the rims and grips...

Beautiful piece mate.


John 1:1–3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
