Finishing Up the Schwinn Stingray

This project has not been complex by any stretch but it has been fun bringing this old bike back to life.

The only thing I had to replace on the bike was the rear tire. I decided to buy an after market tire instead of an original Schwinn mainly because of the price. I was really only going for the right look with the whitewall. The tire I bought wasn’t a slick but the profile had the look I wanted. Plus it was only $20 instead of $100.

After the tire and tube arrived, it was merely a matter of putting on the rear tire, putting the chain back together and putting the chain guard back on.

I think the bike came out much better than I expected.
