Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

Nice Sting.  I can really relate to the white!!!!  You don't see this combo often.

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

Re: 1980 Schwinn Sting

I had a red one and a black one. Actually it was black at first and let a friend borrow it.  He gave it back to me saying he "painted it",when actually I think he "loaned it" to somebody else that did not return it and returned another Sting to me. ;)It also was sans some TuffII's with alloy flanges. Was able to settle up with him in the end . .  Anyways nice to see these again.
