    Nothing elaborate over this way ... just a plain ole bike-bike ... reverse the pedal direction for the brake ... no sissy shifting!

    Here it's getting on towards dark plus it's been raining most of the day (and we had a bear come into camp and my fishing buddy is pointing to right where he came up to.

    Anyway, use the bike for crusin' around the C/G, going to visit the "facilities" and maybe peddling down to the camp store.

    Last summer, I decided it was time to restore my childhood bike. I'm only 26, so this bike was far from "new" when I got it. But I had wanted a Stingray all through my childhood years, and when I was 11 or 12 my mom finally was able to get me one. Being a single mom up untill about that time, she had better things to be putting her money twords. I remember it well, I had waited all week. A local retired butcher, who had then become a great friend, and mentor through my childhood, junior and senior high years had made a hobby of cleaning up old bikes and putting them out for sale in the lot of his old butcher shop. Sid, had this one in his stash. I remember him even helping me to fabricate a rack for it so I could carry things to and from school.

    I rode the bike all through middle school lost interest as highschool came round and cars became more my speed. Sid died two years ago, last summer I decided it was worth it to dump some serious coin and make this bike new.

    Tough to tell, but faded paint, rust, torn seat, and dry rotten tires were the short list...

    [​IMG]

    The whole bike got stripped down, bare to nuts and bolts. The frame media blasted, repainted in original cloud blue candy metallic. All the brightwork was rechromed, the seat blasted, powdercoated and reupholstered. All the bearings replaced, and a fresh new chain
    The only functional upgrade, was a bendix 2 speed automatic rear hub (a correct option for the bike when new) New grips, and as an ode to Sid... The reflector (unrestored) that he put on about 13 years ago, after I fell and broke the original.
    New tires and pinstriping finished the bike off.

    Youd never believe me if I told you how much some of these NOS parts for Schwinn Stingray's cost!

    I did the break down, and all on my own. the chrome work, and paint went to shops that I trusted, and the local bike shop (who we've used since I was little) reassembled the bike for free.
