1981 Schwinn Sting

1981 Schwinn Sting. Bought Original.

1981 Schwinn Sting. Bought Original. Gave to my sister around 1985 for her boys. Bike was in storage for years after her boys stopped riding. The frame was sent to C4 for repairs and painting. The forks was sent to Nu-Chrome for rechroming. Still awaiting the forks return from Nu-Chrome. The forks you see are stand ins from my other Sting. The seat post and neck had to be cut out. The handlebars will be sent to the chromers. The major changes will be the cranks, the seat and seatpost. The last picture is the Sting going for repairs.  MY ADVICE FOR RECHROMING IS NOT TO USE NU-CHROME. HAD MY FORKS SINCE NOV 5 AND HAD NOT RECEIVED THEM AS OF JAN 13. MANY EMAIL REQUEST FOR UPDATES HAS GONE UNANSWERED. SEEMS THE ONLY TIME I HEARD FROM THEM WAS ABOUT MONEY WHICH HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL.
