Just got this one. 1982 Schwinn Competition as it sat for 25+ years in a basement. Every thing is OG to this rare Schwinn down to the super rare Vbars. Traded 3 muscle bikes for it. And after a good cleaning and maybe a set of yellow Schwinn pads she will be good to roll .https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-image … afa22.jpeg

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Thanks for the comments. Let me explain. I bought the frame and fork from a seller out of Washington and it is originally a "TEAM Z". The decals was shot and I could not find a TEAM Z replacement. I cleaned the chrome on the frame and fork. Real parts are not to hard to come by but are really expensive or I just didn't want to deal with overseas shipping. I used parts that I had and bought parts that gives the old school feel. Also managed to get a broacher from my local Schwinn bike shop where I got my first Team Z back in 1984

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Not as fancy as some of the great Schwinn examples in the thread, but I've made some progress on my 1980 Cruiser 5. Still to finish.

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Cool little find from another member here. Shaker was kind enough to I.D. it for me as a very early '95 XS3. The weep holes are odd, they're usually centered on the end caps.

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Wow that's sharp. Early black label livery is rare enough, but one with decals that intact is obscene. Early small leg forks too.

Technically this became the XS-2 (full cromo, 20.5" TT) but I think they just called this the 'Expert' frame at the time. The XS 1/2/3 nomenclature came with the decal change and the introduction of the cromo main triangle and hi-ten rear triangle XS-3. Confusingly, they moved the red accents to the partial cromo XS-3 and the full cromo XS2 became blue so it gets a little confusing all these decades later.

Great find.

Re: Lets see those SCHWINNS...Bikes/parts/ect

Yeah, the early XS model names are pretty confusing. I'm on the hunt for an early XS Pro, which oddly enough is a 21.25" top tube. hmm

Digging this...

I have a black one in my storage room very similar, maybe a little more Patina. I need to get it out and give it some love. I think mine is 72 or 73. A set of Big Honkin Bars would be perfect for it.
