Survivor 1981 Bruiser.  These were built by a local shop owner back in the "Good ol days".  It has KOS bars, Pro Neck stem, Tange fork and Phil Wood modified drum brakes oh ya and OG Araya 7x's.  This thing rides like a dream.  Enjoy. coolcool

The wife and I's Worksmans. Bored the headtubes for 1&1/8" headsets so I could run modern forks and stems. Mostly xc trails around us, but we still have fun. smile

I've been keeping an eye out for a worksman as well. Very cool old/new hybrid builds!

Re: anyone build a 26" Klunker? show me

Every time someone posts builds this nice it costs me money... Ooh! I need a skip-tooth Morrow bomber... Ooh! I need a 650b canti-braked 'modern' hybrid. Oooh! I need a third build around that Atom hub on the shelf! Ooh... I need some damn restraint...

Spent some time finding parts, but a smooth ride.

As far a single top tube klunkers go, it's perfect!

Re: anyone build a 26" Klunker? show me

Check out this thing I grabbed the other day its a 82 Schwinn.Ive never seen a brazed frame with canti mounts.The mounts look legit as far as welds go.I don't recognize the forks either.But to me it looks like a old klunker build for sure!What do you guys think??

Re: anyone build a 26" Klunker? show me

That's stock. My theory is that Schwinn talked ACS into making a script version for them, then MTB's happened so they drilled them but didn't change the script. Totally missed the pedals... those look stock too from the pic.
