1983 Schwinn Thrasher

The oldest bike in my collection.

I bought this Thrasher from the original owner.  It had been hanging in his garage for over 25 years.

The owner was bragging up the fact he replaced the original tires with new ones in order to get it ready to sell.  Makes me want to cry.

No kick Stand.  Pads and grips look like after market replacements from way back then.

Everything else looks original to my untrained eye.
