Not as many as people think. I'm down to a blue 79 Sting, a chrome 80 Sting, a NOS in the box 80 Sting Comp and my rider is a 83 Predator 24.

^^^Same here, I liquidated and want to build one more. A Version with all the parts I would have wanted in about 1983 ish. I will probably build it after I finish my Last Knig Sting build I own. I used to have about a dozen, four stings, three sx2000/comps, a few minis and a few Kings, all at the same time.

Re: How Many Schwinn The Sting , Sting Comps or Mini Stings do you own

I've managed to gather up -  a King Sting,  a regular Sting,  and now a Mini Sting

Gotta say,   I do like the standard Sting the best though...

It's not even done and sometimes I catch myself just staring at it...   lol

Just one - a 1980 chrome Sting Comp.  I ride the bike with my sons so its the best bike in the world to me because I use it when we all ride together.  My sons also "bought" parts as gifts for me that are on this bike - Sting 82 v-bars,
Mint original crank and chainring (thanks Nick!) - Priceless to me! big_smile

P.S. - my oldest son has an 89 Sting that he rides and another 89 Sting frame set he wants us to build up together.

3 Stings (1 NOS blue, 1 survivor red, 1 restored black) and 1 red mini.  Have had various others in the past.  Somehow all of the stings I have are from 1980, didn't plan it that way.  Eventually I'll pick up an 88/89 model.

Re: How Many Schwinn The Sting , Sting Comps or Mini Stings do you own

I was going to immediately say I sold off everything, but realized I still have a chrome Sting and a Red Sting floating around the basement as well as a pink and blue custom Sting Comp I made for my daughter when she was 8.

What would make an interesting post on this same topic would be how many Stings - Mini Stings - King Stings - Sting Comps have you owned.  I'm sure this would be a lot bigger list for some.

Had to be at least a dozen or more. More like 15 Blue King Sting, Chrome King Sting (not original), 2 mini Stings, a handful of Sting Comps/SX2000s, and about 5 chrome Stings. Interestingly, I donated a yellow Sting to a special project going and yet never had a red one!

Re: How Many Schwinn The Sting , Sting Comps or Mini Stings do you own

1/3  I am currently purchasing a sting from a fellow member who was kind enough to finance it for me.  1st installment paid, 2nd installment in the mail and 3rd installment is April 1st.  Then it's all mine!
