Enjoyed this build very much, and I'm humbled to find my bike alongside yours - there is some awesome talent in this group.

DeterioRat is a '68 Schwinn Sting-Ray. Every bit is genuine Schwinn with the exception of the chain, reflector and inner tubes. The last picture above shows deterioRat next to Baby Doll's '68 Slik Chik. One pretty one scruffy is a recurring theme in our marriage.

Everyone ride safe.

A superbly ratisfying build. Great work!
Thanks, metalchewey. Usually can't get no ratisfaction from a BO, but I finally finished one.

Luke.

Thanks Luke! Thanks for all the positive encouragement you provide one and all. And in case you were unsure, I'm the scruffy one.

Man, I dig this. A lot. Gives me a whole new love for crusty stingrays. I wanna ride this one too. Maybe I need to take a few months off work to travel around testing all these bikes before I can vote. :D
Thanks ODDER! You helped make it happen with the crusty gooseneck and headset! Awesome artwork you sent me, too; has a prominent place on my workbench. If your travels bring you to the DC Metro, lemme know.

Thank you for building this 'survivor'. Truly ratty and slightly dangerous to operate.....
You're welcome, good doctor! I love deterioration! And what true rat isn't slightly dangerous? I'll be sure to wear my helmet (not).
