1968 Schwinn Sting-Ray
With the original Sky Blue candy paint, it makes for a nice match to the 1972 Nordic and Royal Blue colors on the Vista Cruiser, race car and trailer.
While there were countless knock-offs, the original "muscle bike" was without question, the Schwinn Sting-Ray. In an era when 4-4-2's, Hurst/Olds', W-31's, etc. were new and roaming the streets in search of their next prey, to any red blooded American kid, the Sting-Ray was the next best thing.
Our example features the optional springer front end and (of course) equipped with a rear slick.
