IMO, Schwinn "Sky Blue" is the best "blue" for a bike ...
Awesome pick-up.

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Re: Look at the 1980 Schwinn Sting I just picked up!

I can't ever remember seeing a sky blue competition. Throw on some oury grips $15, fork decals $25, a new seat and maybe some skin walls (my personal preferance) and you are good to go. The headbadges are easy to find on ebay. Let me know if you need 2 headbadge screws. Ill shoot them over to you for free.

Congrats!


The last and final grail part in need is a Pro Fit stem!
