1983 Schwinn Thrasher

1983 Schwinn Thrasher custom build "SCHWINNING"

Found the seat and handlebars at a local bike shop and decided to build a bike around them. I hunted for the right frame to mount them on for a few months before stumbling upon this old Schwinn frame & fork set at a yard sale. I polished up the chrome and stripped the stickers off. I ordered the wheelset from Mr.WHEELS. Pedals are black resin with anodized blue cages to match the hubs. Gold KMC chain to match the original DiaComp black & gold brake levers. Brake lines were replaced with white Jagwire. Still a few minor details to perfect, but she rides like a dream. I hope you enjoy my build!

Is it just me, or does that frame look bent at the head tube, to anyone else?  yikes

I think that just might be the photograph. This is a stellar build, very cool.cool


Raced NBL tracks in the 80's East Coast. Boston is home base. Wide ranging love for all things BMX. I have great memories and continue to make them. Faster than greased moose poop.
