I think when I;m done it should be fine to ride & I;ll enjoy it & see what happens.
Its not a collectors bike as its not rare & the condition is below what most of them should be for 10 year old bikes Here it is together Had only an hour with it today as had to go to the hardwar to get it some new nuts that weren't stripped & I sprung for bolts too...$5 invested & some lith grease to make them easier to get on n off Thanks everyone for the help Gos I felt so bad didn't sleep you think I lost my whole life savings but truth is I'm really poor & didn't need the new rust bucket but I am getting some weird joy out of bringing it back to life!
The new Sting-Ray sports a contemporary design that takes its cues from great American motorcycles.
To commemorate the redesign of this classic, Schwinn has partnered with Orange County Choppers (OCC) to use the OCC logo on all editions of the new Sting-Ray for mass retail sales, as well as use of the OCC name for Sting-Ray parts and accessories."The original Sting-Rays of the 1960s and '70s were very cutting-edge and took their design cues from muscle cars," explained Byron Smith, Schwinn's Chief Operating Officer & President.
