well I havn't really thought about it... uhh, make me an offer. it also has the original bottom bracket, crank and chain wheel still on it,,, oh ya pedals too,,, which is helpfull cause I think it would be hard to find a modern bottom bracket to fit in it, although I'm not sure. I also have the original headset cups to fit it. it has a pretty nice chrome chain wheel on it, which is in surprisingly good condition... my friend has this bolt on peice that came with the frame to make it look like a boys frame.... I could prolly get track him down and get it from him if you want that too. also keep in mind that I live in toronto, canada. so thats where its being shiped from if u want it. let me know.... I can send pics too

I love those frames. I got one (had 2) and I love it. Just with daytons, a twisted fork, orange plaid seat, and twisted upper fork supports it gets more looks that my friend's radical. Simply because nobody from round here has seen one! Everybody and their brother has a boy's frame bu tnobody has a girl's frame. Whoever has one or gets one should keep on building on it and don't give up. Those damn things are sorta hard to work with because you have to customize to make certian parts like forks fit but overall it's all worth it! ;)

well I can't speak for all old girls frames, but I know that the one I have; a regular seat post does not fit, a regular head set does not fit, and I'm not sure but, I sum how dout that it will use a regular bottom bracket. so it is true that they take alot of modifications to actually be able to ride... but isn't it worth it? how many other bikes do u see with girls frames? hardly any. it makes them rare. but from wat i hear from other people is that there all like that, ur not going to find one that will fit all the modern parts.

All the parts from a Sting ray do fit a schwinn girls bike. I used the seatpost, seat clamp, cups, etc from different types of schwinns and put them on pixies, cruisers and girls bikes.

The only problem is the steering tube. You have to buy one for a 26" and cut it down. Thats what I did for mine. It was still a pain in the ass because the fork was designed for a head tube the size of a sting ray. For anyone that does not know, a girls frame has a longer head tube.

you can use any kind of neck, handlebars, cranks. Whatever you want on one of those frames...

Yeah the standard seatpost, steering tube and some other stuff doesn't fit (the gooseneck on a girl's frame is long!) But like socios b.c. said, use a 26" steering tube and cut it down and I just using a painted stock seat post. After all of that yes it is very much worth it! Like I said, rather cruise the girl's frame over the sting ray. Just with bent forks, and maybe a few twisted parts here and there the dam nthang get's mad props and attention where with a sting ray with everything twisted and double twisted random people come up to me and say either (I got one like that) or My friend or relative has something like that! Not a person yet has come to my girl's frame and said that $hit. BTW: Yeah a standard or lowrider crank, sprocket, bearings and everything else fit a girls frame but with a bent fork you have to have a lowrider crank (a really small short crank) or else it'll be too low to pedal. I had that problem. ;)
