Me, my brother and my sister all had Schwinn Stingrays when we were growing up. For some reason my Dad only kept one- my sister’s Pink Lady.

When I was back home with my kids visiting this summer I went up in the garage attic and pulled it out to see if my daughter could ride it. It still has the original pink flowered banana seat. The tires and tubes held air for about half an hour.

The thing that really amazed me was how HEAVY those darn bikes are. How the heck did we manage to do all those wicked jumps and tricks on such a brick? It took all of my strength to pick the thing up over my head!
