  1. Dibs and pm for Direct deposit details or Cash is prefered. Pay pal is fine but add 3% to cover fees. This is a 1975 Schwinn Scrambler frame with original Ashtabula forks which I restored early last year. This has been powdercoated in Gold with a small metallic fleck through it and a clear coat to finish so it looks fantastic. Ashtabula forks, Ashtabula head stem and the Box Bars have also been powdercoated in black low gloss. The wheels took me ages to source separately. Rims are NOS FEMCO 20 x 2.125 Hubs are NOS Shimano Spokes NOS original 70's 14G Takagi MX cranks, seat post, seat clamp, kick stand all re-chromed to a show finish. Seat is a padded banana seat with a plastic base but still from the 70's I believe, Sissy bar and chain wheel are reproductions. Pedals ES NOS 70's pedals Hunt Wild grips from the US This is a beautiful piece of American history. These were the first ever mass produced BMX sold in the US starting in 1975. The white scrambler decal on the top tube has rubbed of a bit on one side when I cleaned the dust of it recently but can easily be replaced. I'm chasing $1000 Pick up from the Gold Coast.
  2. MattB, Save yourself the nightmare of sourcing the parts etc and buy this one. Cost me more to build it than what Im asking.
  3. Thanks Jasbins Been trying to sell for ages but just no interest from buyers just admirers.
  4. Did anyone here use to be a member of this track in the early 80's I was present at the first dumping of dirt at this track. My Folks have all my old bmx picks packed away in storage eventually when I can get hold of them I'll post some pics of various SA tracks...

  11. I have had a few things done at GC electroplating. Its a must to talk directly to Ron the owner and not the guy in the office as sometimes theres a break downin comunication between them, If you talk to Ron explain its a vintage show bike he will take extra care and you get a great job, if not you can loose branding etc in the buff process. I will use him again in the future...
  12. I found I had Type 2 last year and it does settle down and life goes on as normal I sometimes forget now accept for the medication.. Go and get your eyes tested mate once they settle down properly, I wear glasses all the time now. You guys should still be able to holiday as long as Tracey's arm sorts it self ok.

  19. First time I have built something like this up. Its an original Dragster, cross over with BMX, they came off the production line with these forks bars US bottom bracket etc. The 1975 Scrambler was the first ever mass produced BMX in the US. Thought I'd post up my latest build as it currently stands. Still chasing a few bits like chain wheel / guard and rear mud guard. Frame and fork are a 1975 Schwinn Scrambler Wheels are all NOS Femco rims, Shimano hubs and laced with original old nos fat spokes. Pedals are NOS ES extra smooth Had 70's MX cranks, 70's seat clamp, 70's seat pole and the original kick stand re-chromed. Mint survivor banana seat new sissy bar NOS Box bars, NOS Hunt Wilde grips, Generic NOS head set and Bottom bracket.
  20. Theres not a huge weight difference but Graphites are a bit lighter and dont flex anywhere as much as the standard ones do. Worth the extra $$$$$
