Yeah I'm leaning to the red.. I think I'm going to match a color at work and go to town and spray it myself..
The advantage of working at a paint supply shop. I can make just about any color I want.

King Sting goodness finally in my garage. Man I never imagined from the pictures how tight the cockpit is on these. Much as I hate to modify such an OG survivor bike (as if me and "not modify" EVER belongs in the same sentence lol) definitely will have to do something about that.

99% as per original save the OG King sealed headset, OG Strong alloy post, OG Tuff Neck style clamp and new cables/grips/tires. 100% original paint decals and chrome. Need to find a 44t chainring, and I'm torn on the bent levers or not, I've seen them both ways, and though I'm usually the last guy on the planet to worry about date coded brake cables, yeah, I think I'm going there on this one because this new yellow just feels too electric for me to possibly be right.

Some great builds in this thread! Here's a bump and contribution.

Pair of CyclePros I have since sold-

DB Sand streak-

Schwinn Sidewinder-

http://i64.tinypic.com/2wch5zk.jpg


And I just picked this up  this week. Not sure what the frame is. Anyone have any idea?

http://i64.tinypic.com/imq6o4.jpg

It has had chainguard tabs removed, and  the welds are pretty chunky. My guess is mid 80's import. Everything is really similar to cyclepro, except the looptial.
