Re: 1981 Schwinn King Sting 26

Oh man that is absolutely INCREDIBLE. Never seen a Cardinal Red King Sting. Then to go with blue parts that are really hard to accumulate..... this bike is FANTASTIC. Im in the middle of a King Sting build and I hope it comes out half as nice as this one. Great build, great part selection, super rare frame color. WOW!

Cool bike!
I worked a Schwinn dealer in the 80s and this grips gave me a flash-back. If you soak them in the parts cleaner for a couple of days they swell up to about three times their size.

Beautiful!!!!  I miss mine...all of them!


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

To say you did a jam up job on this build is a complete understatement.
