    This gem came into my life last year. The grips were toast and put a bogus plate on it. Otherwise as found. I’ve wanted one of these for a long time.

    Hello group! I just picked up a 1976 Schwinn Comp Scrambler that looks like it has an original Webco Super Stem on it. I haven’t been able to find much on line regarding rarity or worth. Anyone here that has any insight to this brand and their components? Thanks!

    Early on we experimented with internal geras via a Sturmey Archer hub that was triggered by a brake lever. If adjusted right, it would bypass the middle gear. Canoga kooks started the trend I think.

    I use to own a dirt slinger when I was 13-14 it was a good starter bike later got into free styling and turned it into a trick bike but the DS had too much rake, bought a Haro Master that’s DS f&f laid around my back yard for years, not sure what happened to it, wish I still had it, bought it at Finish line bike shop in El Centro Ca

    Just scored 76 Motomag 1 wheelset with no guts. The ex BMX racer had speed holes drilled out for weight savings. No broken webs!

    Excellent! An old acquaintance of mine won that exact same bike in a raffle contest back in the day. I remember drooling over it. I say "acquaintance" and not "friend" because he ended up being a dick. Every time I had him over my house I'd notice something missing after he left... several Aurora slot cars, a set of Sugino 3 piece cranks that I can remember. I soon realized that it was him. Anyway, he got the bike stolen on him. What goes around comes around...

    I have an old Powerlite that was given to my son years ago, by a buddy of mine who bought it back in the 80s. He passed away last year and I want to give it to his son so it's back in his family. Just not sure the year. The only numbers I can find are on the rear brake bridge that are 00202. I am assuming that's the serial number. Any ideas?

    Ok so I have had a set of wide I forgot what the stamp says on them. One was nod I found at a swap I think last year and the other I’ve had for around 4-5 years just sitting LOL well I just got a call from my buddy that builds rims in the side. And well took a wildly since I found the 1st on me and now they will be on my hands Wednesday and then put on my rig with some dope ass OG chunky tires. I just hope they for the frame and fork LOL. Side note my buddy found the no’s Mx hub on his stash and tossed it in. I also used an older set of some heavy gauge spoke wheels for the spokes. And dam they look like they come in around 20lbs ea haha cant wait! Any idea when that came out ? Super heavy steel Araya hoops. They look like small dirt bikeish hoops

    Araya Model 17(3). The mini-cycle ones were the model 105 and later called 106 when the BMXers started using them.

    Bringing this thread back to life. Just picked this up yesterday.

    No, it’s not April 1st. Yes, I know I will regret it and never own another one. Due to a host of poor life choices and a series of bad investments, I have decided to finally let my 1977 Torker MX go after over 25 years. I found it in the L.A. Times in the mid ‘90s before I even knew what eBay was. I got it almost as you see it here. I added the Redline stickers on the forks, Oakley grips and pads which were all NOS before that. I also added the minty Mesinger seat that I got on the site. The bike came with a Brooks seat that I tossed because I didn’t know what it was back then and couldn’t find any info on it—wah, wah. The frame is OG paint complete with the LBS sticker. It is in great shape but not 100% perfect. There are some reasonable scratches. Redline nickel-plated forks and V-bars. Obviously it has Motomags II wheels and the tires are Cheng Shin—they look fine but have million little cracks in them. I was told its Schwinn chain ring? Cranks are Takagi MX with KKT Lightning pedals—missing one cap. Yeah, they are too new, but they came on it. Seat post clamp… PLME or Laguna—can anyone tell? And then there is the Cooks Brothers double clamp stem—“It is so choice, I highly recommend picking one up if you have the means…” If there is anything you guys can tell me about this bike, or if I am wrong about something, let me know. Yes I am asking $4500. Wait, what?!? Look, I’m not trying to be a prick (it comes naturally). Like I said above I will never find another one—not like this. I couldn’t find any bikes to compare it to, but the one Cooks Brothers stem and one PLME clamp on eBay sold for like $1500 EACH… I don’t want to rob anyone, but I don’t want to leave any money on the table either. I am willing to discuss price with serious buyers—especially trusted members who won’t powder coat it green. I will also send more info, pics and video. There’s a catch however (there’s always a catch). I will NOT ship this bike. Cash paper money in person only. So you can come here to Phoenix, AZ, or for the right buyer, I will bring it to SoCal OC area. This will not show up on eVilbay. For sale here and on the BMX Society site only. No joy riders, tire kickers or dreamers. No sob stories, I have my own. (Sorry, old Criagslist habit.)
