  1. Hello Mark Mc: Under the Wanted section on this site I posted "Champion and A&A OS parts needed," which lists all the parts I desire. Thanks, Garrett
  2. Hey OLDSKOOKPK: I checked the Freestylin' and the poster is indeed in there (see attached images). I am mainly trying to complete builds for the 1976 Champion and two A&A bikes i have. I would prefer to trade the right parts for the collection or sell the entire lot of magazines for more than $10 each. Thanks, Garrett
  3. Hello Champion Registry contributors: I cannot tell you all how this Registry and thread by all of you OS BMX'ers warms my heart. I have been after a Champion for years and was finally given one after decades of searching. I tried to respectfully buy the Hank & Frank Lafayette Champions, get one from John Wells, get one from DCBMX1 and on and on. There is something very special about this time in NorCal described elsewhere by John Wells and others with Silver Shield, Hank and Frank, the early Pete Harrigan modified Schwinn Freight Trains, and on and on. The Champion is a NorCal treasure. I was a bit younger than John, Pete, and the others in Oakland, but even then I knew the Schwerma Champion was special. Thank you all! Much respect, Garrett
  4. Hey dunphy 1: Your Champion #CF 059 is exactly the same vintage as mine (#CF 061). What year is yours. I am thinking mine is 1975 or 1976. Thanks, Garrett
  5. Trail bike designed for thrashing single-track in the Oakland, Berkeley, and Marin hills.

    Champion build in progress. Note beautiful nickel 2012 re-finish now turning a sweet yellow. In the 1970s it had three-piece cranks with the Cooks brothers bottom bracket sealed bearings. Note the early industrious labor of Oakland's Jeff Osegueda in making a rear brake caliper mount and seat post clamp for the unusual size frame detail.
  7. Curt: Thanks for the timeline. Goes to show, I guessed the mid 1970s and it was 10 years later. Regards, Garrett
  8. Hi All: John, I told you I would finally get a Champ. This was originally Jeff Osegueda's bike, bought new in Oakland at Hank and Frank. Pete Harrigan set up the rear Bendix coaster for me many years ago. Cycle 24-7, the reason I re-plated it is because it was ridden hard and put away wet. Behind the bottom bracket was nickel damage and still had mud on it when I got it. I could not afford a Champion and had an A & A (baby blue). I lost track of it, but got another from DCBMX1 about 10 years ago and still have it (I also have an orange A & A with Tuff Wheels and Ashtabula parts that is pretty cool from DCBMX1 also). Back in the day, I took a lot of crap for my baby blue A & A, but I loved that bike. I will put up pictures of the A & A bikes soon. Thanks Guys! Regards, Garrett
  9. Steve: Did you notice the Silver Shield decals I uploaded in this thread? Garrett
