Just a footnote to the naysayers, I repeat: There was no modification to the frame or the forks. That is a "Bent" 26" springer on a 64' Stingray with only a spacer under the bottom race... I have read that it couldn't be done, and that nothing will line up.

My son. :showingbiceps:

This guy makes that little bike look :eek: dinky!
So, here's the punch list...

1. Tall seatpost and sissy
2. Taller apes and stem
3. Sprocket... crank's in route
4. wheelie bar
5. Paint ( I think we're going Orange )
6. Tires and rims
But we got the bare bones so far! :banana:

The scale reminds me of the Schwinn StingRay Runabouts.

Yeah I haven't done much research but I do know after the 64' Stingray came out, they changed the frame some, to create two bikes. From 65' on, the seat stays are a bit longer and more arched and the seat tube was lengthened a bit too, this was now the Stingray, and the original frame was renamed Stingray Jr. So, even though this is a 64' Stingray, it is the same frame as a Jr. from later yrs...

Got a lot done today after school...
schwinn crank with an old sprocket...

add pedals

there's a Park chain tool in there somewhere...

My boy didn't like how the 16" wheel handled so he put on a 20"

^ also check that fat 20 x 2.35 mongoose tire on the back now...

I think the stance is better with the 20 up front too.

Yeah now I'm keeping my eyes open looking for a 20 x 1 3/8 rim and tire. I think that'd look sweet next to that 20 x 2.35

Stole the mockup bars off of Fruit Krate, and the rigged brake cable from ALiEN FiRE, and cruised a couple of blocks down to my GF's house tonight...


I've been doin' some research on this thing...
looks like a Ross Apollo...
but I can barely make out the CC on the head badge...
It's a Duster made for Coast to Coast hardware,
and my boys old mongoose in the backround.
