Craig’s list $50 snag lol 1979 SX-100 MAG Scrambler

Recommended Posts

So as I do on a regular basis I posted that old “looking for old BMX” listing and yesterday I got a text with this. Guy was asking $50 for it so you know the rest.  Picked it up this morning and man she’s a beauty. Really only needs a good wipe down and some air in the tires and done. And I love the shop sticker as I use to go to the shop bitd.

Thanks guys. The only thing I may change are the tires out with the tires on my Torker MX. And that’s it lol

Good old Jacks Schwinn down on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.  Great bike shop back in the day. Heavy into BMX and sponsored a few riders.

I dig the orignal condition and local bike shop sticker, very cool.

I sometimes wonder had Schwinn paid attention and marketed that exact bike in 1974 or 5 (they were aware and could have done so, but did not) would Mongoose or other early frame builders had a chance?

My recollection is that Schwinns, like the one in the post, were chasing the BMX trends not starting such with the exception of the Sting, which was a solid attempt at a then state of the art race frame.

Cool!

Are those tuffs original to that bike? I had this one a while back with Schwinn stamped Lesters on it...

holy cow... Mangalloy. There's a word I haven'y heard in decades. And those Schwinn tires... I really liked the front when I still ran 2.125 front, 1.75 rear.

That is one, sweet bike.
