Awesome bike and story. Nice to get it back I bet. Stolen from me was a Schwinn Sx-100 scrambler, I miss that bike, also delivered papers to buy it. I need to get an old Schwinn 26" frame and build a bike like yours. I have that exact same acs stem in my garage, maybe it's a start to another build lol

Needs: 79 or 80 nos/mint Chestnut brown SX-100 or SX-500 Scrambler frame - Single Gusset, smooth brazing, made in Chi-town not Taiwan.
