    Have you tried your own site Jim? There are no pictures to enlarge. Maybe that's why no one has responded.

    Same here. If the pic is on your harddrive attaching to a post is pretty easy.

    Its on my hard drive. I've been messing around with a digital camera. It came with its own editing software. When I hooked up the USB cable the 50 photo editing/media programs that came with my computer started fighting over it. I finaly figured out how to keep all of them from opening when I hook up the camera or click 'edit'

    Anyways...this picture was taken at night with low resolution....its interesting because you dont see this many Old Schwinns in one place very often.

    Yeah, I also prefer the old school Schwinns. But the new Orange County Choppers version of the Schwinn Sting-Ray is getting a lot of kids more interested in cycling. Kida are realizing that cycling is more than Lance Armstrong at one end and a wild Freestyler riding a bike down stairs at the other end.

    I agree with Oldroads. The new "Stingray" may just get a bunch of kids riding. That would be a "good thing." (I hope Martha Stewart doesn't mind me using her expression)

    Actually I kinda like the new bike. Unfortunately, with all of the twists/turns with Schwinn I'd be concerned about quality, something my parents wouldn't have been if they had bought me a Stingray back in the 70s.

    They didn't......too cheap.

    Walter, i agree about the quality concerns. Having seen a new chopper up close and owning one of the most desireable modern Schwinns I can honestly say the welds and chroming do not compare. One day out in the rain and your going to light rust on the new bike. The new chopper looks pretty cool. I'm tempted to buy one just to have it as a conversation piece.

    My desireable modern Schwinn is an early '80's Sting BMX bike.
