Heck, it doesn't have wooden tubulars.

Use at will, I'm not a psycho picture Nazi.

I found this at a garage sale about a month ago completely disassembled and put in a box. After a quick look see, to my surprise, all the parts were present and knowing what it was (the seller did not), I gladly paid the full $15 asking price taped on it.

Here is a completely re-greased, tuned up, and assembled 1964 Schwinn Stingray Super Deluxe. What an absolute hoot to ride around on, gets huge smiles from the over 40 crowd.

I dig my bikes with original patina, dialed in, and ready to ride, as apposed to fully restored garage queens.

Well, not very vintage, but here my beloved nineties LOOK, like ONCE'S Team in Le Tour de France. Carbon frame, still very useful bike!

Sure is!

We would scavenge those sweet old Campy parts from my buddies dad to lighten up our BMX bikes back in the day.

Beautiful.

Some of the BMX heads might know what this is, I recently pulled this out of my dad's attic, it was my very last BMX bike which we purchased part by part together, 50/50 back in the late 70's early 80's. He would help buy any part as long as I paid half out of my own pocket. Needless to say, it didn't get raced for more than a few months as I got my licence and she just hung in the garage collecting dust from then on.

For shits and grins I checked on eBay, these old 80's BMX bikes are pulling huge coin.

I'll have to snap some pictures of the rest but...

Very early serial numbered 1979 JMC Long Standard and first year fork.



Bullseye Euro BB.

Gah..... LOVE this frame! I was racing right around that time too and still have my nearly intact Hutch Pro Racer in the garage. Trying to post pics but Photobucket is giving me fits. Will try again later.....

Awesome Thread!
I'll ALWAYS lust after my older cousins' Apple crate with the 5 speed shifter on the top tube
My parents gave me an AMF Roadmaster pos for Christmas, but at least it was a bike and it meant freedom! My other friends had sting rays and my Roadmaster scraped on the chain guard with every downpedal of my right foot!

Never got the applecrate and no idea what happened to my cousin's.
