SCHWINN STINGRAY 3 SPEED RESTORED

So some of you might remember a few months ago I picked up a blue Schwinn Stingray.

Well after a little work, a lot of sweat, a little bit of money and a few bloody knuckles...  This, became...
This!
It's now restored!

I picked this up as an Xmas present for my son and said we could restore it.  He wanted it green so now it is.  Plus, the original Sturmey Archer 3 speed is back on it....
and a front brake like it did when it was original.
I kept the original seat as it was still usable, plus, they're not cheap to find.  I also tried to keep as much original as I could.  Just cleaned up and polished.
I think it turned out pretty well.    Defininetly a learning project, but very fun and awesome to ride.

If you can, find something cool you like and restore it to it's original glory...   It's Vintage Gear ... for the littler Guy.
