Here is a (79?) Mag Scrambler SX100 I picked up this summer. It needs bars/stem and a seat. I planned on adding an Ashtabula stem I have and some good Schwinn box bars to fix it up a bit. Otherwise it's a pretty good survivor.
I'm another Chicago burbanite and grew up drooling over the new Schwinns at the Village Peddler in Crystal Lake. I can still smell that bike shop in my head.
Cool thread, so I just snagged this exact same model, SN HQXXXX. The mags are yellow Lester's with a coaster brake. Only two issues:
1. The coaster brake is acting funny...it's stops as it should, but often turns soft a bit before catching in the drive direction. I've never taken apart a coaster brake hub, so I guess I tear it apart and see what's up.
2. The frame is much more faded than the one pictured in gts340's post. very minor rust here and there, should I just clean up the frame and wax/polish it some or what would be the impact if I re-painted? I might do that but the painted-on decals would be gone for ever.
I'll post a picture later...it has nice yellow tuff pads (vinal with tuff snaps) as well.
