    Was on the way to work today when I picked these two up.

    The Mag Scrambler has bent fork syndrome, but everything else on the bike is very nice. First gen. unstamped Skyways, Scrambler tires and a DiaCompe brake caliper out back.

    It's clear that these were kept indoors all of their lives at Grandma's house. They have just enough grunge on them to make them fun to clean up. It's probably a good thing that the Mag had a bent fork because chances are, the kid stopped riding it after that.

    A kid in my neighborhood growing up had this exact Mag Scrambler and he used to tease us for having Huffy BMX bikes. WHO HAS THE LAST LAUGH NOW BUDDY!!!...just kidding, that would be pretty sad....ha ha! :lol:

    The Mini Scrambler is near mint and even has some nice Schwinn Tractor tires that look like they were barely ridden on.

    Nice finds. Looks kike you got some nice ashtabula stuff there too :wink: . If that fork is ashtabula it might be worth straightening. looks like the stem on the mini is ash. too. I really like that mini-don't see them in that nice of shape often.Can't wait to see the Steve o.c.d. treatment on them.

    Re: TWO SCRAMBLERS

    Oh man...my garage is starting to get out of hand...ha ha. :lol:

    The one thing that I've proven to her over the years is that I rarely lose money on any of this. She's always been amazed by the profit margin on this stuff and she knows that if things get tight, I don't mind selling stuff to keep us out of the red.

    This evening we were out in the garage and I told her....See all of these bikes? If I sold them all, we could pay off the Trailblazer.

    This is what her face looked like >>>> :shock:

    There may be big blow out sale soon enough. :lol: :lol: :lol:
