Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Here's what I've been working on, a 1978 Schwinn SX 500 Scrambler... Well, it doesn't say SX500 any where except where I painted it on the forks, but let's say for sake of argument it's an SX500...

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

79 SX1000 - This bike belonged to a childhood friend of mine. Every time he got a new part for it I got to give her a test ride to check it out! Always wanted this bike and over the years wondered what happened to it! Earlier this year I stopped into the Schwinn shop that I spent a great amount of time and money at growing up and the shop that this bike originally came from. Well there it was, on the rack with the used bikes for sale! Struck up a deal with the original shop owner and there ya have it, mine!
Bike is 95% original as built by my friend, had to change a couple parts that were either broke or not original. Finishes on everything are original as well!

It's your fault for scoring that thrift shop Sidewinder.  On the day you posted it, you turned me into a monster!
