Custom Photo Shoot with 2 Schwinn Restorations, a Custom Sting Ray, & a Cool Old TruckDecember 21, 2020
1953 Schwinn Panther RestorationDecember 21, 2020
After restoring several Schwinn bicycles, such as a Panther and 2 Black Phantoms, Noel thought it would be cool to find a Sting Ray and paint it with a Phantom paint scheme. They're not super easy to come by, but as luck and possibly fate would have it, the next day, one of our customers donated a Schwinn Sting-Ray that had been painted to commemorate a special moment for someone in his family. He no longer wanted the bicycle and wanted to donate it to us to pay it forward. Noel couldn't believe it! It was exactly what he wanted for his next project! In no time at all, he started disassembly and began stripping paint. Afterward, he did his usual magic of sandblasting, priming, paint, and masking for the Phantom look. He used replacement parts for the tires and tubes, cleaned up the chrome, and ordered NOS Schwinn Sting Ray decals. The bike turned out beautiful when Noel finished his craft. Now we have a Custom Schwinn Sting-Ray with a Schwinn Black Phantom paint scheme! It's a one of a kind jewel! Can you say Phantom Ray or The Phantom of the Sting Ray? Too cool!
