    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?
    The search for inner peace continues...

    He could have paid you to take it - that would have been a better deal.

    Always a smartarse in the bunch eh?

    Looks like fun - enjoy.
