    Classic Sting-Rays coming back -- Grey Ghost

    Was looking at the Schwinn Sting-Ray site ( http://www.schwinnstingray.com ) to check out their new Sting-Ray and noticed a news blurb about the reissue of classic Sting-Rays. I checked out the press release and they'll be offering two models of the classic Schwinn Sting-Ray in extremely limited runs: the Coppertone Sting-Ray and the Grey Ghost. The release says they'll be availabe from independent Schwinn dealers in June.

    I was at a vintage bike swap meet saturday, and most of the bikes that they had there were Stingrays. Those are some nice bikes, I must admit!!

    You're not going to set any speed records on one, but they sure do make great conversation starters on the local rail trail.

    Ahh, what memories. My first bike was a Sting-Ray Deluxe in lemon yellow. I must have gone through at least 5 rear tires on it, skidding around corners with the coaster brake. Still wish I had it...

    When I was 10, I bought a new '65 Deluxe and found out in short order the cost of being stylish. My buddies all had Schwinn Racers and I got mighty tired of having to pedal my fanny off trying to keep up. Not completely able to admit I choose a crap bike (from a practical standpoint), I traded the Deluxe for a 5-speed Ramhorn Fastback in '67. A little better, but not much. And my erstwhile pals reveled in hanging the damned thing from trees by the ramhorn bars.
