1995 Schwinn XS ENF

Schwinn's first production aluminum BMX

100% original ENF. As sold: frame/fork/stem/Dia Compe Aheadset with the ultra rare early black decals intact. Designed and welded in the USA by the team that created the Homegrown mountain bikes sharing Schwinn's patented Epicenter stays and an industry first extruded bottom bracket/chainstay yoke. Tips the scales at a svelte 7.25 pounds as shown.

This bike's story is a common one, a guy and his buddy saw it in the catalog, they each ordered one (the only ones he ever saw in Nevada) and raced it for a couple years, discovered cars and girls at 16, so the bike goes into storage. FF to 2015 and a member here bought it for the wheels, cranks and bars and I scored the rest intact. The only thing missing are the brake posts. Later bikes shipped with red dropout washers, dunno if the early frames did or not. Total production of these frames is estimated at just over 1000 units. The transition date to the standard red 95/96 decal set decal is unknown, though it was prior to frame #236.
Christmas 2016 this bike found a new caretaker.

Nice find dude! My current build is a '96 ENF Pro. Also have a sweet '97 Pro Modified 1 all built up too.

My 1994 Astro built racer had the red dropout washers on it, alas they have gone missing but I may still have them, there was a set in blue on my blue pro stock 1 though I still have, can be re-anno'ed in red, I'm pretty sure the red XS 3 came with the red ones also.

Speaking of that racer and the Homegrown connection- it seems they may have initially thought to call it a Homegrown model but changed their mind.

Re: 1995 Schwinn XS ENF

And a quickie rider build- craptastic components, but 99% Schwinn. Picked up a 2000 Superstock Comp donor bike, a pair of bars from a '97 Pro Modified and some NOS tires...

It's a Model T towing a Ferarri for the time being, but he's a roller again.

Re: 1995 Schwinn XS ENF

My first build of my first 96 had redline wheels, D 'back 48 spline pro cranks, X-Games seat and such, but it rode so damn nice, has not even been sat on since I restored? It though, rafter queen only.

My nephews rode the crap out of it and showed it no mercy in the first build, Schwinn sure built one hell of a frame didn't they?.

Re: 1995 Schwinn XS ENF

BTW, I'm not positive but I think that 2000 SS Comp has the same fork as the Blue Falcon, just painted black with a brake hole, are the legs ovalized at the top and have chiseled ends?, there you go.........

Re: 1995 Schwinn XS ENF

Yeah, have yet to take it apart and look for a stamp. Pretty sure the '01 comp was cromo steertube only, but '00 might have been full cromo. The brochures aren't reall clear... on purpose I believe wink

Re: 1995 Schwinn XS ENF

Hey snagmaster.  The forks on the 2000 SS comp have a very similar design to the BF fork - ovalized legs and all, but the BF forks are made in USA, are 100% chromoly, and have a slightly different bend/shape.  Also, the BF forks don't have a front brake mount hole.  The forks on the 2000 SS Comp, as Mat stated, are chromo steer tube only and are made in Taiwan.  The SS1 and SS2 have the full chromoly forks, but are made in Taiwan.  Curiously, I have a set of forks off the 2000 Pro Stock, which are of similar design and are full chromoly, but have a super thick steer tube - they weigh in just over 3 pounds.  I have two sets of forks off a 2001 SS1/SS2, which are chrome plated, and they have a normal thickness steer tube.   The steer tube is stamped "F Cro Mo."   I compared them to my 2000 BF forks and they are of similar weight and tube thicknesses.  Good forks all around.

Good stuff all the way around. I'll pull them them and get some deets... if for reference if nothing else.
