Re: KING STING : TEAM SCHWINN TRIBUTE

Looks awesome.  I really dig the TEAM SCHWINN decals.  This sets it apart from ANY other KS out there, for the better!!!


Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

Re: KING STING : TEAM SCHWINN TRIBUTE

^^^ I actually have another set of blue ukai and sunshine hubs with much brighter ano for this build.  But, waiting patiently for my pro wheel builder buddy to get them assembled.  In the meantime, I picked up the faded survivor UKAI/Sunshine set that got me riding.  And I'm loving it.

Thanks again to all those checking in on the thread.  The majority of you have made contributions to this bike and I'm grateful for this site and the cool connections.  And, this is also one of those builds that takes me back to those early days of riding bmx.  Can't stop smiling when riding. big_smile
