These are my Schwinn Stingray OCC chopper project bikes
This is a long term project that I will document here.
 
Thanks for looking
 
These bikes were only built for 1 year and are very hard to find
Please click on the picture to go to each bikes build page.

Bike #1
Date of Mfg: ??/??/2004
Bike #2
Model: Stingray OCC chopper
Date of Mfg: 11/15/2004

This bike is in fair condition
the fork tubes are tweaked on it from being run over,
the chainguard is missing and both brake levers are broken.

I am going to take the fork tubes to a motorcycle shop and see if
they can be salvaged or not, if they cannot be salvaged I am going
to get a new springer fork set for it.

I started the teardown on this bike this afternoon (4/2/12) after getting both bikes home from the bike shop where they were purchased. Other than the missing/damaged parts listed above the bike is in pretty good condition with some minor rust issues.

I was able to straighten out the lower plate for the forks so that is is now flat and square, I removed the cranks and pedals and put them on Bike #2 so that I could have a working bike to ride and play with while restoring this one.

I will keep you updated on the progress of this rebuild as it goes along.

This bike is in Good condition
the crank assembly and chain are missing on this bike,
the chainguard is missing and the front wheel needs to be trued up.

After tearing down the other bike I took the crank assembly and chain and put them on this bike, and also swapped handlebars to give myself a more upright riding posture.

This bike is now ridable and will serve as a test mule while I build the other bike.

I will keep you updated on the progress of this rebuild as it goes along.

 

Bike #3
Date of Mfg: ??/??/2004
Proposed End Result
This bike is now the Rat Rod Trike
This is the end result I am planning on
with "The Mule "

I am of a very strong opinion that these bikes were marketed to the
wrong market segment, they should have been marketed to the adult
rider instead of the kids market, most kids at that time were getting
into bmx and stunt bikes, both of which this bike does not excell at.

If these bike had been marketed to the adult market, I feel that they
would have had more success and would have been around longer, good
for the market, but bad for the collector wanting a collectible bike.

Our other Bikes
Debbie's Schwinn Sierra 700
Purchase price: $29 at Goodwill
When purchased this bike had a broken spoke in the back rim
and the back rim needed truing. The Bike shop we found
Sprocketsbicycles in Porter TX suggested that we put a heavier duty rear rim on it. We had Matt do this and tune the bike up.
total cost: $140 for rim and tuneup. total cost in bike: $169.
Enjoyment value: Priceless!!
This bike is a monster! 700mm wheels on it (same as used in the Tour de'France), and the high gear front sprocket (not sure on tooth count) allows Deb to pedal with ease and cover great distance
LaJolla Cruiser
Schwinn Skyliner
My long distance cruiser
The workhorse bike
Family Gathering
New Family Picture
The newest member of the Family   "Silver"
