1982 Schwinn competition trade up.

Recommended Posts

So story is this a guy posted this bike on a Schwinn page on the FB and said he had no idea on old bmx bike and picked this up in a deal with a few stingrays. So I sent him a msg about it asking about his plans with it. After a bit of haggling we worked out a trade for it. I gave him 3 muscle bikes 3 speed ray, Single speed lemon peeler (wrong fork) and a 71 huffy Jet and $100 All bikes needing work. Any way got this one home and found out a bit on it. Even though it was in the 82 catalog they didn’t make many with the foil decal, & this one was almost all stock (grips and pegs) any way I changed out the Oakley grips after I scraped them off the bars to black finish line. And not touching the peds unless I find some Schwinn rats. Tor it down in the cold with the heater on my legs lol. Head set and bb are Schwinn crank arms stamped 80 on arm and inside. Any rate she looks fast just sitting there.

Very cool!

Is this frame the same as a Sting? I see the 5 inch head tube but I have no clue?

I am assuming this is the full size frame? And if so how much smaller is the mini?

In any case i dig it!

This frame is only brazed at the head tube and that’s it. The sting every weld is brazed. Not sure on the sizing on the frames
