1981 Schwinn Scrambler

This is a loose replica of my first BMX bike which my brother gave me in June 1983 shortly after my 11th birthday.  He had spray painted it blue and assembled it with spare parts.  I remember it had a Pro Neck and "alloys" for rims, lol!  Some of the parts made their way to the Schwinn Sting I got the following Christmas :)  This bike belonged to my step-brother BITD and I rescued it from my father's basement.  I gave him a call and he said I could have it.  Luckily it was the same style frame/fork and this one still has the original blue paint although it's not perfect.  It actually had some good parts on it, but I changed it up to a close approximation of what I had.  I like to call it my "rat bike", lol!
