Funky lol
Wheels are turning around
The hills roll out like centuries
Pass by without a sound
Just a mile outside of town

Just think how history would have taken a turn if Schwinn had introduced a take-off of that design in the 60s instead of the Sting-Ray. They could have jazzed it up, and every kid in the world would have wanted a little dragster bike that looked like what Rat Fink rode. Instead of running around doing wheelies, all the kids would have been going for speed, even giving adults on 'ten speeds' a run for their money.
