1981 Schwinn Scrambler

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 smile  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!

Nice build, bro! big_smile

My parents got me silver Scrambler f/f  for Christmas back in '81 or '82. I pieced it together with doner parts from my old Huffy but it got boosted from the garage shortly after I finished it so I didn't have a chance to really enjoy it.

Having seen yours, I might have to build one for old time sake. wink

Don't mind me. I'm just here to look at pictures.
