1980 Schwinn Sting

Sting BMX Race Bike in original black from May of 1980

This is one of two Schwinn Sting frame and fork sets I purchased on closeout sale from Schwinn in 1981 or 1982. The Schwinn Rep for the bike shop I worked at let me know about them as he new I was a racer. They were both made in May of 1980, 111 frames apart from each other.  Both originally had the Schwinn Forks, I twisted the OG forks in a crash and then replaced with the Redline forks since I liked them better and Redline made a fork with a 5" headtube. I have a pic of this frame in OG race form and I was able to ID it by looking at the old pic with a magnifying glass and seeing the P3 sticker on the BB which is still on the frame today. I actually sold this bike in the late 80's and then purchased it back when it was traded into the bike shop. I am so glad I bought it back! It was built up and rode for many years and then sat for years in parts. I built it back up as a daily rider. 

I hope you enjoy seeing it.
