    So I managed to scrounge enough parts from the parts bin to put the blue 81 Motomag together this weekend.

    I had a near mint set of Schwinn Scrambler wheels with Bendix 76 rear coaster and a Schwinn high flange hub up front.

    Sugino snowflake chainring, Ashtabula crank, Messinger seat, Ashtabula stem, Motomag bars and Hunt Wilde grips.

    Not overly crazy with the newer Kenda Comp II's, but I had a set on hand so what the hey. :p

    Wow, Just imagine what people would say if you showed up at the track with a RatRodBikes.com sticker in 1981. :lol:
