    The second one has a freeze crack in the cantilever tubing? That's not a big deal to fix, wire wheel it, hammer it closed drill the ends of the crack and weld it shut.

    If the stays are solid and you (or your pal) have a welder.

    They're both Schwinn frames. Second digit being a P makes them 1978. First one has a Scrambler sprocket but that's not a scrambler frame. Second one looks like a short frame so could have been a Stingray jr or Tornado.

    The black forks are bent. I threw some random bmx parts at the good frame last night. I'm not in love with the result. I could probably be convinced to part with these.

    My plan would be to paint this, and put some black gumwall bmx tires, chrome bars & probably chrome coaster wheelset on it. If anyone feels they could give these schwinns a better life, I'm open to trade offers for 24 or 26" frames, anything old & bike related I can hang & look at in my new shop.

    I heart rrb.
