MISC:   Schwinn Scrambler posted by: Tom on 8/9/2004 at 3:12:02 PM
Schwinn Scrambler, not MAG Scrambler

Taiwan made, 1977/78 vintage. Bike is really rough but complete. Would make a great donor. ACS cast pedals & brakes, Polycast rims, etc. Chrome is rusty, paint is beat but no dings or dents oddly enough. Even has original Schwinn Scrambler tires. Bike is red w/ red letter Schwinn head badge. Needs TLS (tender loving surgery). Neat bike though and one of the first BMX.

$20 & New England (MA) pick-up only.

I am looking to buy/trade a Suntour rear idler for 2-speed crank gear conversion. This derailleur-type idler similar to those on multi-speed road bikes.

NEW or USED OK!

I have an old school Shimano freewheel hub in excellent shape, new in bag Shimano coaster hub freewheel conversion kit, or new in bag anodized Torker BMX stem from '1984 to offer for the idler, your choice. I can also pay cash.

This part will be used in a street cruiser I am building w/ my son.

I think Akeroid is that guy Jimmy from OS-BMX. If anything, that guy is a idiot that uses his "handicap" as an advantage! Just because someone calls you a name, and you cry, and cry, and cry you think everybody should feel sorry for you! Just ride your bike and shut up because ALOT of people are sick of your non sense!!!
