I just bought someones baby! 1980 Schwinn 26" Deluxe 10 BMX Cruiser

I just bought his baby!
Got it from the first owner. He must have been at least 75 years old. Local bike came from Schroeder's Schwinn in Vancouver, Washington 1982. It is a 1980 Deluxe cruiser . He said he got it one sale. Then had it custom built into a 10 speed mountain/BMX cruiser bike then when he bought the bike new at Schroeder's Schwinn.
It was his baby and always took real good care of it.
Just look at it. Sweet condition. big_smile
Schwinn Deluxe cruiser frame, Tange 26" forks, Schwinn headset, Red bars (brand?), Cool grips (brand?) , Pro-Neck, Schwinn Cruiser/Maximizer tires, Sturmey-Archer drum brakes, Ukai rims, Suntour 7 rear derailleur, Schwinn front, Shimano deerhead thumb shifters, Schwinn cranks, Schwinn pedals, Fluted seat post, Messenger seat, Jim Blackburn rack, and a adjustable seat clamp from a Schwinn exercise bike!

Most people don't know, but look real hard at that 10 speed chainwheel.  Now strip off all the guards and extra rings and you have...a Scrambler chainwheel!

Very nice, Rob.  Did you get it at a reasonable price?  Old Schwinn cruisers rock!  Picked this up over the summer:

Same rig came on my '73 varsity too. 

Awesome score.  Nothing rides like those old Schwinns.

Naah, 26x1 3/8" would be too easy -- try 24x1 3/8"! lol  But I see your point.  Anyway, this thread is about your ride, and it is beautiful.  Looks like it belongs in a...MUSEUM!

Nice parts, but IMHO it would be a travesty to change a thing.

Very cool custom time capsule!


Please don't let me buy any bikes from you.  I have an addiction.  You wouldn't want to be an enabler, would you?
