    What to do!?

    I have this 1980 Schwinn Stringray II that I’m not sure what to do with. It’s a solid bike, and my kids (and myself at times) ride it. I’ve had it for years, and paid around $20 for it, but I don’t know what I should do with it. Is it worth finding original parts and refurbishing it, or should I...

    After tons of research and asking on other forums I came up with it being a Stelber-Iverson/Ross mashup branded as a Vista. Pretty weird and a cheaper hardware store bike. But I’ll keep it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Entered the serial number in a Schwinn bike page and it came up as being manufactured in 1957. Markings on the Wald fenders, AS & Co head badge, and wheels place it...

    My first real bike

    My dad sent me this picture a while ago (yes thats me in the 1980s get up) and I wanted to put it on here in hopes of someone being able to ID it. I cant remember when I got it, but it belonged to one of my uncles back in the 70s or early 80s. My grandaddy fixed it up and gave it to me. I rode...

    Schwinn "The Sting" BMX

    Hey everyone. I havnt been on here in a while...been really busy. Anyways, I picked up an old Schwinn "The Sting" BMX at a garage sale this weekend for 5 bucks.
