1997 Schwinn Moab up for grabs. 19 inch frame. Very original.
They're aren't many of these left in this country now especially in this condition. Schwinn were a very big seller in the USA and Canada.
Changed the front brake pads.
Original tyres that have the embossed MOAB design on them from the tyre Company.
New pedals as the old ones were shot. Put brand new DMR V8's on it in a very similar colour to the frame. They look great.
No dents or cracks to the frame. Marked from storage/moving but has not seen much action.
Although I have changed the stem for a shorter light weight alloy one (was over reaching with the original) I still have the old one that the bike would have come with from new.
A very high specification bike in its' day.
Forks Rock Shox Indy C.
Shimano A levers.
Acera X cantilever brakes.
STX front mech, rear mech and chainset.
Araya TM 820 rims.
Shimano Parallax hubs.
Clip on pump.
Rear muguard new.
Will come with a front dirt cruncher guard as well.
The front head badge has the number 2496 embossed into it. (Believe it means manufactured week 26 of 1996).
Still has the original stitched MOAB saddle.
New light weight alloy stem.
Collection from Stroud, Glos preferred or £30 P & P.
For pics pm or request send email details as they don't do the bike justice on here
