1980 Schwinn Sting

They're still out there.

Pulled this up from the basement of an old Schwinn dealer.  He could care less about bmx.  He has probably 30 old 26" bikes on display around his showroom floor.  Last time I was in, I noticed a '79 MCS hanging on the wall.  He custom built it in '79, and had just purchased it back from the family who had it since day one.  He then tells me "I have a Sting downstairs for sale."  After drag racing to the ATM to pull out some cash, this is what I came home with.
