Covid2020 grab 1979 Yellow Roger DeCoster

Recommended Posts

Ok as most of the rest of you I have been sitting at home other then going out every week and a half for “supply’s” I live in Detroit, MI and getting hit hard here. Any way I’m scrolling the bay 5 days ago and see this, now the bin was crazy $2000 or best. First I thought over powered build ! But I checked the description and the seller posted his phone number to “make offer” so we connected and told him in no way I was going to pay The buy it now price, he told me to shoot him an offer to where I responded I don’t wanna be that asshole that send you a stupid offer but he said I could do is ask. He came back to me with $1100 shipped it was still a little bit out of reach for me. So the day went by and he said shoot me that stupid offer so I offered him 750 and he said deal packed up and shipped the same day at my house three days later. The story behind the bike it was given to him by his uncle’s wife to Scrap. It’s crazy that this kind of stuff is still out there.

Every thing looks to be right out of the schwinn shop in the late 70’s & early 80’s. Still baffles me that he bought a DC 1020 for it lol 

mans the paint is unbelievable no rust a little touch up, plus the forks are very close shade of yellow. Any way wanted to share and hope everyone’s family and friends are doing good right now.

So I had a set of original finish yellow Motomag II mags with old schwinn scrambler tires on them. And because to keep my wits wile on lock down I tossed them on the whip and I kind of like it.
