1980 Schwinn Sting

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.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

That same old guy tried to offer me $25.00 for a disk brake Apple Krate that I used to own.  He totally tried to low ball me on that one............. ten years later, I feel that I got over on him.  I almost got it for $100.00, but had to settle for his original offer of $200.00.  As I was rounding up the cash, he got on Egay, and realized what he'd sold........... his employees were chuckling at him when I got back with the funds.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

I just logged in and this was the bike on the homepage with the ticker at 999 views.  This Sting rocks.  And it's cool you added the pick with the Ride Lawrence bike rack.  smile
