1998 Schwinn Pro Stock 3 24

1998 Schwinn Pro Stock 3 24 cruiser in Black.  6061 T-6 aluminum race frame, and a CL find.

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!

Stock:
Schwinn Chromoly cruiser fork
XS drop nose cruiser stem for 1 1/8” threadless
Schwinn racing saddle by Velo –retro graphics
XS 40 tooth alloy sprocket
1 piece XS cranks -180mm
Chromoly 26.8mm seat post with clamshell micro-adjust
24” Alex Rims AL-7X240 single wall 6061-T6 alloy rims
Red Schwinn hubs by Formula –loose ball

Upgrades/Changes:
No name V-brakes replace with new Tektro red brakes mostly to match the Schwinn Red.  (OG brakes were too orange.) Silver/White brake cable replaced with new red Odyssey Slic brake cable
Schwinn chromoly cruiser handlebars (probably Kalin), replaced with Black alloy MCS cruiser bars.
Black VP pedals replaced with NOS XS red pedals –again for the color.
Alloy Aheadset replaced with a NOS Black XS labeled Aheadset for tighter fit.

Stuff I want: 2000 24" DB Reactor Team frame ,  Voxom and Enigma stuff. Alliant / Radix stem and stuff.  JW and Stiffys stuff.  Cool late mid-school cruiser parts.

Very nice Schwinn.  Check out my 2000 Brian Foster Signature edition 24". It is not an aluminium frame, but it rides super smooth.

Cheers.

I have one of these frames and I thought they were the  recalled ones.
