    My mother bought this for me and I’ll pick it up over the weekend. Nothing like waking up from working nightshift and getting a text asking if you want this bike. I’ll find out more once I bring it home :)

    You already got the snowflake, you are just a pair of tuffs and a few misc pieces from something like this...

    There are a few such beasts on bmxmuseum.com...I just picked the one that had the snowflake :bigsmile:.

    https://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/schwinn/82000

    I have four 'camelback' frames (two schwinn 24" & 26" and two aluminum) that will must likely get similar treatment...which is why I immediately thought of the same when you posted up the Ross :grin:.

    Sweet! I have a 24” and 26” schwinn camelback frame. Not sure what I’m doing with this ross yet.

    Its got good lines...it already has a bit of a custom look to it. Kind of similar to what I call, my lil' bobber...
