1980 Schwinn Sting

Cool racing bike

1980 Schwinn Sting.  Wanted one of these when I was a kid...had to wait till I was 40 to actually get it.  Anyhow, the bike is about 90% period correct.  Has the rare Schwinn v bar and some cool NOS stuff.  Has some new school stuff as well like the pedals (Profile GASS) and White Industries freewheel.  I do ride the bike from time to time which is cool. 

Thanks for looking.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

great looking build.  I picked up a NOS 80 Sting comp.  I was going to build it until I found out OG parts are rediculous to find.  yours looks great

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

Cool bike. Do you really ride with your bars in that position?


BMX IS SERIOUS BUSINESS! Just ask Brian Hays.

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

Thanks for all the the comments guys, I appreciate them.  In terms of the bars, they are a bit far out, but, I needed to do that to clear my knees  as the top tube is fairly short (and I am fairly tall).  I may put a longer stem and perhaps a laid back post on the bike at some point, but for now it works pretty well.

Thanks again
