Schwinn Brings Back Classic Sting-Ray Bike

For the bike geeks among us, a re-release of the Sting-Ray. I never had one? My childhood bike was a baloon-tired woman’s bike–a source of both liberation and some humiliiation to me. Somehow riding a Sting Ray now would probably just as humiliating.–Corrie

 

The Sting-Ray came about in 1962 when Schwinn designer Al Fritz figured out th0se whacky California kids were retrofitting bike with motorcycle styling, i.e., ape hanger handlebars and banana seats.
