Schwinn Sting-Ray

Has anyone seen this bike? I do have to say that it is cool looking, although I would never buy a Schwinn!

Saw it on the Today Show earlier this week. If I was a kid, I would hurry down to the local Schwinn dealer and buy me one. I think they said it costs around $180.00. Yes, I agree with you, it is cool.

What I wouldn't have given to have a bike like this when I was a kid. Probably would have tried to jump with it though..... and I doubt Dad could have straightened the fork. Remember when the banana seat was cool? Long handlebars... man, I'm gettin teary eyed.

Note: They didn't name it IKE... part of the graphic was cut out... just said "THE BIKE"

They can call that Harley Davidson lookalike whatever they want. THE STINGRAY had a banana seat, ape hanger handlebars, shifter mounted on the top tube, and a sissy bar on the rear. The original was a better looking bike than that monstrosity that they dare to call Stingray.

Here is the one Giant is offering, the Stiletto. Eight speeds, rear disc brake and a half shaft so yo dont end up with a super long chain drive,
