    Identify this unique looking bike?

    I saw this bike in a Craigslist ad near me, and I'm curious what it is. Any ideas? The author described it as a "low-rider chrome bike" but didn't know anything else besides that. It looks vintage (the banana seat and overall look) so I thought I'd ask here.

    Looks like someone modified a Schwinn StingRay to me.
    Laterally stiff yet vertically compliant.

    If you ask me that has repop allover it. I actualy don't think it's old. I see alot of those here on local listings. they sell them just like that in custom bike stores. I could be wrong though. thats what is known as a pimp bike.

    Those lowrider bikes are VERY popular here in the Phoenix area. 90+% of them are modified Stingrays.

    Interesting, thanks folks

    The seller said it was his or her daughter's bike, but specified that despite being a "low-rider chrome" bike, it was explicitely not a "trick" bike, or for children.

    Thanks!
