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

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!

Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!
