Something very old for you all.

Back in 1972 Rick Twomey of Rick's Bike Shop came up with a new radical design of bike, he took a Schwinn Stingray and changed the front end and produced the first ever 'diamond' frame shape, a design that has been with us from that very time and is what started BMX (or BX as it was originally known).

This is a replica of one of those original team bikes as ridden by Dave Clinton, John Palfreyman, Thom Lund and Doug Takahashi.

Parts:

Frame:  1972 Schwinn Stingray modified
Forks:  Schwinn Stingray
Headset:  Schwinn
Stem:  Schwinn Gooseneck
Bars:  Unknown
Grips:  OGK
Seat Clamp:  Schwinn
Seat Post:  Schwinn
Seat:  Troxel
Cranks:  Schwinn
Chainring:  Takagi
Pedals:  Union
Chain:  Union
Rims:  Moped
Hubs/Spokes:  Front - Normandy, Rear - Shimano Coaster, spokes - 12g Heavy Duty
Tyres:  Raleigh
Number Plate:  Peston Petty

Thanks Stidds, wow what a huge compliment from you, with your builds and bikes in your stable, I'm chuffed with your comment. That's good enough for me !

Your Schwinn is something else though, a true genesis build, real insight, determination and passion is required to pull off a build like yours. Amazing build with a stunning result. Respect

Grips:           Ame
Seat Clamp:  Hutch Donut
Seat Post:    Nitto CrMo
Seat:            SE
Brakes:         Dia Compe MX1000, Tech 4 Levers
