1998 Schwinn Pro Stock 3 24 cruiser in Black.  6061 T-6 aluminum race frame

 

This was another CL find.  I bought it from the ‘kid’ who used to ride it at the Lake Park track in Tampa.  All stock, only one tire had been replaced, there were no grips, and the seat was wrecked.  Fortunately, I had the right seat already in my collection.  I put on some Odyssey grips and NOS red XS pedals from Urban Beach cruisers to top off this and freshen it up a bit.  Some of these frames from a couple specific date codes were recalled, but this Date code is 1357 so it was not one of the recalled frames.

The wheels need adjustment, but even with that –this rides Extremely Nice!
