Re: 1981 Schwinn Sting

That's a beautiful bike. I think this is the first "The Sting" I've ever seen done in Black and Chrome.

Eye catcher for sure. coolcoolcool

Re: 1981 Schwinn Sting

Rare to see chromed Stings... I had a painted black and a painted red of course working in the LBS growing up helped me acquire such nice bikes but this is nicer than all of the Stings we put on the floor or I have seen at the track. Congrats on a nice build. cool
