2018 Champion 24
A fun mutt of 80s old stock 4130 tubing completed along with some newer stock.
This Champion is one of those recent vintage eBay frame sets comprised of mostly original tubing from BITD. I never knew much about the Champion brand until I came across the frame and researched the company history. Very cool frame designs, I see the true vintage examples on the museum and they are very cool. I liked the back story on the newer issued frames, wherein a time capsule of original tubing was uncovered and all the 4130 tubing finally seeing the light of day as bikes! I say these are MOSTLY original tubing as I believe the 20" and 26" models are complete with vintage tubing. The 24" cruisers are mostly original but the seat stays and chain stays are newly sourced 4130. Given this particular example is not of historical significance as a collectors item, I love that I can feel liberated to ride it without feeling guilty!
