1972 Schwinn Stingray

Old Stingray Done up mx style.

Frame and wheels came from craigslist, He's also a member here i think.Pulled some parts together and came out with a pretty sweet bike. Its a wheelie machine. and a great coffee runner. It gets a lot of attention at the shop.

Re: 1972 Schwinn Stingray

those lester's were such a project!. They had some serious cake to sand off and i had to completely rebuild the coaster hub, i feel like i t was worth it though.

...and Sunday cruising So-Cal on a chrome stingray? thats top notch

Stunning!

My best friend just bought me a pair of identical Lester mags to go on my '78 Schwinn Mag Scrambler.  I hope she looks half as this when i'm done!
