2017 Midwest show. Good to meet you Larry. Loved talking to you about Schwinn history and getting to know your bikes! Look forward to seeing them again at future shows. -Willie (short guy in yellow mushroom grips shirt)

Thanx for the Vote!!! I had a great time building that bad boy 100% 76 or earlier parts. The early evolution of BMX doesnt give tou many options.

Re: A'Herns Schwinn - Green Sting

I remember popping in to Alherns back in 1983 or so,,,,,we just finished riding some trails behind Morton college in Cicero and rode our bikes there. I was in awe! High ened bikes hanging from the ceiling! Heaven! The original owners son actually owns a bike shop in Countryside on 55th and Lagrange Rd. They had zero interest talking about the past when I brought up A’herns :[

Re: A'Herns Schwinn - Green Sting

Hey Larry, have you thought about making some A’herns tee shirts like in the old pics to go with your tribute bike? I think that would cool. I would even buy one if you made extra!
