1966 Schwinn Stingray

rescued from the weeds to ride again...

I found this frame in a stand of bamboo. I met this guy who was clearing out a stand of bamboo in his yard, in the thick was this Schwinn frame amongst about 30 other bikes from the 70’s. I just hung on to it because of the gussets that were welded into it back in the day, it had been converted for BMX use sometime in it’s life. I got the NOS morris mags from a customer; the rest just slowly came together over time as I was in no rush to build it and not actively seeking parts. Once all the parts came together, I used some OSH orange spray paint and assembled the bike.
