Cruiser Build 26 Inch

Postby mxmort » Sun Mar 10, 2013 11:11 pm

Hey lads
I swapped a mate a early MS for this cruiser but not sure about a year for it.
He thinks it is a Shwinn but wasnt sure
It had 26 straight forks like a bmx but he tossed and whacked on 27inch racer forks (dont ask me why)
So before i go whacking on 26 ayaras and tange forks etc i would like to know how old the frame is??

The frame has 7822922 stamped under US bottom bracket
The chain stays are curved aswell which i havnt seen before
Thanks and any info would be awsesome

Im not an expert, but if it was a seriously old bike I'd expect it to have really cool gussets instead of welded frame joins. Build it how you want! 8)

Hi guys I'm new.

I have the same bike and don't know what it is either. Someone suggested it might be a Repco Beachcomber??? The previous owner said he bought it second hand about 20years ago and that it had been repainted 7 years ago.

Looks 80s to me. There was plenty of these type of bikes in bmx trim being sold in the US at that time.
