Best Deal Ever!

I have a 78 Sting-Ray that my boss gave me (He collects Schwinns) for FREE! I did end up giving an old magazine as a thanks (he collects those too)

The bike is pretty rough but is still a great bike, I had the local BMX shop (2 by 4, it is owned by Van Homen (sp?))) put on a new chain, I will eventually put on some new heavy duty wheels so I can take her off road a bit.

Can't beat free.

Looks like it will make a nice project for you. Does that one have 20" or 24" wheels?

Sneak on over to the 'Before & After' thread,. On page 2 is my '81. I gave $5 for it at a yardsale and put another $130 or so in it.
