1980 Schwinn Sting

1980 Schwinn Sting

1980 Schwinn Sting Mike Poulson Replica

1980 Schwinn Sting Mike Poulson Replica- all Team Schwinn components, Sting bars, white spray bombed frame (the way Mike Poulson used to do back in the day), and Tuff mags. All original stickers applied. I know this is not an exact replica, other than the white paint, because most of the parts are factory Schwinn, and more than likely Mike Poulson used aftermarket, stronger race parts. Nevertheless, it sure turns heads.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

I rode for Schwinn (Co-Factory) bitd and I too spray bombed my frame "to be like Mike". I think you saw and commented on mine when I introduced myself to the site. Love the Stings!!!

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

way cool!  have an extra sting f/f and because of seeing your ride may copy it.  really dig the white and blue - so different.  any leads on a blue handlebar pad?

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

I have never seen or know of an original painted white Sting frame.  This was sprayed bombed, nicely, to be like Mike Poulson's white frames.
