HOW TO: "Economically" Install Apehangers onto your OCC Schwinn Stingray and we provide everything you will need to DO IT!
The OCC Schwinn Stingrays HAVE TWO (2) DIFFERENT STYLES OF HEADSETS:
Threadless & Threaded -Triple Tree HEADSETS. The SLIDE SHOW on this page shows the installation of "Apehanger" Hi-Rise Handlebars onto an OCC Schwinn with a Threaded Headset.
The photo [just below] displays the 2 style of "triple trees" that come on the OCC Schwinn Stingray. [Left] FLAT TOP CAP IS Threadless and [Right] LARGER RAISED TOP CAP IS Threaded.
IF YOU HAVE a THREADLESS Triple Tree [left] - YOU CAN Install "Apehangers" however, the stock handlebar clamps are not really strong enough to hold them in place. After installation - you will likely have to drill a pilot hole thru the top handlebar clamp AND Handlebar. Then, insert a self tapping screw to hold them in place. ...But I would not recommend this METHOD.
The BEST way to UPGRADE to Apehangers is = to use a THREADED style triple tree [BELOW RIGHT] and follow the steps in my slide show.
Everything you need can be purchased right here on this page. ...Including "threaded" triple trees. If any further information is needed contact me using the form below.
BELOW ARE THE [INDIVIDUAL] ITEMS YOU WILL NEED TO ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS UPGRADE. Please designate colors where applicable. If you have any questions contact me in the form below and I will reply promptly...

Typically we have plenty of BLACK OCC Schwinn THREADED triple trees - which matches up with many frame colors.
