I just posted mine in the gallery section, but here it is…Just finished assembling it last night. I had one of my friends powder coat it metallic green. I found the decals on ebay. There are two basic chainguard decals. One has the little cartoon tiger and the other says “Stingray” on it. Mine is a ’71 and had the tiger, so I stuck with that.

They are fun little bikes to build, but the parts aren’t cheap. I still need to find some training wheels. I have a set of Schwinn 16” Pixie training wheels that I might be able to convert.

good thing youve got all those sting rays! glad to hes out helping you(and thinking about the next one already!). its looking good so far:mrgreen:

cranks....i didnt just took the pedals off. he learned to balance that day and was riding with no training wheels the next day(put the pedals back on)....training wheels reinforce bad habits and dont teach balance at all.

Yeah, I have a 12" balance strider bike for the grandkids to learn on. I am looking for the training wheels to complete the build. My grandkids live 12 hours away, so it won't be getting a ton of action, so a nice way to display it in the garage would be cool. I did find/modify a tiny kickstand already

Here is the Lil Ghost that my dad and I did a few years back. I had been trying to find a picture of it with no luck but happened upon it today with a random google search. Looks like the last place I can put it is in Los Angeles around 2007. I will continue to search the floppy disks (holy cow!) for some more pictures. If anybody knows where this bike is I would like to know where it ended up!

I actually just scored another one today at a swap meet and will post pix tomorrow. This one is red so it will get restored with an Apple Krate seat cover.

Enjoy, Jon

Pix as promised, have not torn into it yet. Have to locate the top bar. It will be restored to mostly original. Will get an Apple Krate seat cover just like the Ghost I did. I was not sure if the training wheels are original since I see a lot of them with metal wheels not plastic like these, but then I found pix of an nos out of the box complete tiger that had the plastic wheels.
