    The dropouts look like Schwinn. Text sent. If you part it out I'm looking for an original Krate fork.

    The Death-Ray: World’s Fastest Schwinn Stingray build

    I want to use 16” Sting-Ray Pixie forks to drop the front as low as possible. I bought two NOS forks and designed a custom flush hidden headset to get the front fork even lower. Today I filed the stock fork crown races off so I can fit my own stainless spacer on there. Sent from my iPhone...

    The Death-Ray: World’s Fastest Schwinn Stingray build

    This is where the dangerous fun starts. I tore the bike down and then chopped and shaved the frame. I’d already cut off the kickstand frame mount and chain guard brackets. I cut off the fender bracket and rear fender mounting nubs. I shaved the head tube down to 2.75” tall. I shaved off the seat...

    The Death-Ray: World’s Fastest Schwinn Stingray build

    Hello Fellow Ratty Bikers! I’m building a gravity racer out of a 1968 Schwinn Stingray. I got the bike as a $50 basket case from a guy out in the country past the F1 track. I was building it up as a lightweight rider when I decided I wanted to see how fast a Stingray could go. And that led me...

    Oct 13th Vintage Bicycle Club of Texas Swap Meet - (PICS!)

    No really. Who was selling it, how much, and what's his phone number? :) It looks like a B10E - original paint on the frame. Probably the tank and rack were cobbled together with a repro decal on the tank. The V-swoop handlebars on it are nice!

    Yeah! What was the price on the shafty and what was the price of the red tired moto-balloon next to it? Is that a Schwinn? Dang that's nice.

    GOOD NIGHT NURSE! -- FORT WORTH BIKE SALE

    The 1/2 price thing started at one maybe? Everything slowed down and most of the prize bikes were gone - then they announced that everything was half price, and it all stayed half price until the end. All of a sudden sales perked up again! Yeah the late 40s cruiser I got is a Huffman made...
