Schneider racing Proto/ test frame

Recommended Posts

I know this isnt a newer school bike site but I thought I'd share this anyways since it's not an everyday bike you see.

 

Here is a non serial number proto/test frame that Doug Schneider built back when he started building bmx frames and early decals. It's a black 20' Pro xl frame with different drop outs. His later drop outs had adjusters built in them like my 24" Pro xxl frame that he built.

 

I will post more pics when it arrives.

 

Here is a quote from Doug

 

"It was one of my team guys frame, Wayne Mcabe. it was one of the first frames that i made, maby third or forth. i dont think it even has a serial number. it is still in good shape, it just has some of my first style dropouts. probably a 2004 frame"

I like the US made brands,as i also did bitd.Since coming back to racing ive had 3 frames,a Redman,Black Crown and a S&M...theres a real grass roots feel to a bike that you where it came from

My friend Dave Archibald rode for them about the same time McCabe was on the team. Those bikes ride really well

Jim Dukes rode for Schneider as well and my pro xxl 24" was his according to Doug when I spoke to him years ago. The only other pro xxl 24" is Dougs.

 

If anyone is looking for any Schneider frames he has a few left from when he built frames.

 

He also built 10 frames for the Redman team but the owner never paid for them.

It appears very well made. Reminds me of high end 531 based road frames and/or a Schwinn Sting.
