    I got a new old bike today! It's a 74 still has original parts! No chain guard or fenders, but it looks like they were never installed.

    I tried one on it, but wasn't really feeling it. Looked a little heavy in the rear.

    Like you needed another Stingray?!! :?: Leave some for the rest of us! :lol: :mrgreen: Really just ckin up on ya, you looked kind lonesome way back here on page 2. Don't feel bad, I have been stuck here for a week now. Seems like it's way too hot, or I am @ work lately. Hope to get some stuff done this week since it will be cooler. Lower 100's ya know? :lol:

    A man can never have too many Stingrays, at least that is what my Grandpa told me, I think. :mrgreen:
    I hear ya on the heat, been working a lot myself. We need to find an air conditioned shop that runs for free. Once again I spent all my allowance on jellybeans. Someday I'll learn. NAH! :lol:

    Re: Schwindian Distractions, In A Good Way

    Well I had picked up my boss's wife's bike a while back. Got around to getting it done (freed up some real estate in the garage), and made the delivery this morning.

    Thanks Fellas! Had a good time with it. She was excited to get it back home. Even said she may come to some of the local events. :D

    What a great distraction! I get a lot more satisfaction from buildling a bike for someone else than I do for building for myself!

    Keep up the good work!

    Re: Schwindian Distractions, In A Good Way

    You got that right Pick! Anytime I can put a cool bike in someone's hands who loves it I feel like I have saved a part of bicycle history from being forgotten. Plus the smiles I get in return are always worth it.
    That don't mean you can have my Stingray though :) Take care folks! See you on the next ride hopefully.

    Put the license plate on this morning. Still not digging how the spark brake is working out. Either way though it rides good. And who needs brakes when you got Chucks on your feet?

    I know the feeling bro! 111 degrees two days in a row is enough to expire anyone! Maybe we should move to Alaska!
