Re: 1976 Schwinn Competition Scrambler

Hi Brunson,yeah I tried to buff out the shine on the chrome,an old school buddy told me it won't shine to much cause it's plated with nickel,it kind of stays a little dull,I like that though,this bike rides like a small mtb,I'm really happy with his one.smile

Never heard of Schwinn using nickel, they always used chrome. In 76 they offered chrome, silver mist, sky blue, flamboyant red as full bikes, and green and black as frames only, as well as the other colors. My understanding is if they have chain guard mounts they were factory builds, no chain guard mounts meant they were frame orders that were custom built. These bikes were full chromoly hand brazed in the custom Schwinn Paramount shop, where the Paramount track racing bikes were built. They used extra thick Shimano drop outs reversed for bmx use, extra big 26.8mm seat post also pirated from the Paramount racing bikes. These have really good geometry, and I think very underrated early bmx bikes. There's actually a green survivor in the museum, really cool bike, still haven't seen a black one.
