Re: 1979 Schwinn Sting

I pisses me off that this example of BMX royalty has only 17 "favs". This is the nicest Sting in the country, bar none.  The Sting is the first elite race bike EVER made. I wish people had the knowledge and respect of this bike. EASILY the best bike on the museum. One tire (NTKK) is worth more then half the bikes in the museum.
