That is a Killer Score!  Interesting the listing did not read "old school" or 'vintage", escaped a lot of eyes... wink

The Back Story
I was sitting around last Sunday afternoon, sitting around doing nothing when I decided to pump on eBay and do the old BMX search, then there it is... the first newly listed auction on there.  I look, I read, I reread, and reread again... I couldn't believe what I was looking at, and it had a BIN on it... So I did it.  It had only been listed for about 10 minutes before I hit the BIN, so I doubt many other people ever actually saw it. The only thing that sucked was having to pay the $150 shipping cost.  I then sat around nervously awaiting its arrival for 4 days.

So fast forward to today.  I've been sitting around nervously since about 11am today waiting for my local Brown Clothed delivery man to stop by... then at 2:45 he got here  FINALLY. 
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w37 … f611f1.jpg

I was happier than 4th grade girl getting to meet Hannah Montana!!! (or whoever is popular right now) 

Here's the aftermath of unpacking...
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w37 … 3de30e.jpg
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w37 … 726a33.jpg

And here it is...
http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w37 … 0b5a42.jpg




I still can't believe it, this is far and away the best looking Survivor I've had to date, and it's built piece for piece with what I would build a bike with.  What's best is that it's unmolested, untouched, unrestored! According to the original owner this thing has been sitting since he finished racing it in 1983... it's sat inside, protected and climate controlled ever since. 

According to my good buddy, Mr. Nick Malko, this might be one of only a handful known Sting Competition to be stickered with this very rare decal set, none on the Museum







So here are the flicks... 100%Original and 1000% awesome

It looks almost NOS.  That's and amazing find, and an unbelievable deal, even with getting raked over the coals on shipping.  Wow.
