    From the frame I found on Craigslist, there is a new tomato on the vine.  Period decals are hard to find, so I added a old school headbadge.  It takes me back a little to my first Stingray way back in 1969.

    Dig the head badge. Schwinn shoulda done them like that. đŸ˜‰

    Have you considered going retro for the decals? I know what a pain Homegrown decals are to get, but sometimes you can score vintage Schwinn decals on the cheap on fleaBay. I think some old school decals would look awesome with that paint job.

    Thanks, Moby.  I did see some decals on ebay a while ago, but missed out on the bidding.  I am looking for at least a couple of period correct homegrown decals for the TT.   I would also like to score a couple Schwinn decals for the down tube.  I’m keeping my eyes open.

    Well I don’t got any from ’96, but I do have a couple of the small top tube stickers from ’98-’99 (the green oval with sparkly lettering). You’re more than welcome to them if you think they might fit on your project? They’re leftovers from a project I just finished up. They might make an ok space filler until you find the right ones.

    Thanks for the offer, how much do you want for them?  You can email me @ gss1123@q.com.

    FOC. That’s industry lingo for “Free Of Charge.” But you gotta promise to post up pics when you get them on your rig.

    Thanks to moby’s generosity, I was able to add a little “sparkly green” to the black and red.  Much appreciated!

    Cool Phantom paint jobs give me wood.
