1965 Schwinn Stingray

Schwinn Stingray frame, with a Tuff I in the rear, and a Tuff II in front. Schwinn Scrambler fork, silver Schwinn Crank and Neck, original Schwinn bars powder coated blue. Waffle grip and seat re-pops

I got my Son Zac a 2008 limited edition PK Ripper, and didnt like the rims, and since I am a Mag guy,  I got him some new Tuff II's on the Ripper and traded off the stock Ripper rims to a guy for this StingRay frame.  My friends at the Local Maaco do frames for $25, so I had it done in gloss black, and built it up with a Tuff I in the rear, and a Tuff II in the front. I built a 26" version of this bike as a big cruiser, and this is the little version for my son, for our cruiser days.  As for the front sprocket... I have been reading that the original scrambler front sprockets were inner / smaller sprockets that were used on the Schwinn Varsity, and the chain-ring / chain guard, so that is the sprocket, I just need to add the chainguard.  This was just a fun build, but will be cool with it's "Big Brother" the Schwinn Cruiser 5 I have built.  I have some cruiser bars to add to this to match up with the Cruiser 5, but I have get them done blue to match.

The 70's... We had no knee pads, no over protective soccer moms, no mini vans, if you messed up it was actually your own fault, and we rocked out to 8 tracks, cassettes and vinyl.  THAT'S HOW WE ROLLED!
