Vintage Schwinn Stingray

Vintage Schwinn Stingray

 

This  vintage Schwinn Stingray bicycle is complete with all original parts and paint and still in excellent condition. We rescued it (along with a Schwinn Stingray Fair Lady) from a barn and spent many, many hours cleaning and detailing it back to great shape. After all was done, the most significant cosmetic damage was a series of scratches down the left side of the sissy bar. The original Schwinn Stingray tires were tested (rode it around the neighborhood), but there was some crackling from dryrot on the walls. The sparkling blue banana seat had two tiny pinhole nicks in the lower right side, otherwise in perfect condition. There was virtually no rust on this Schwinn Sting Ray bike and it looked absolutely amazing after 33+ years of terrible storage conditions. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see more pics. The beautiful sparkle blue mid-70s vintage Schwinn Stingray got an opening bid of $300 exactly 23 minutes after it was listed.It sold to a very happy individual for about $400.00. Below are more fine examples of this highly-sought-after American Classic.

The Vintage Schwinn Stingray!

vintage schwinn stingrayThe classic vintage Schwinn Stingray we have loved for decades was designed in 1962 by Schwinn's designer Al Fritz. Originally known as Project J-38 (sounds like something out of a James Bond movie), Fritz was inspired to design this now iconic two wheeler after witnessing a California youth subculture trend of customizing bicycles with motorcycle parts. The result was the first Schwinn Stingray, a wild and radical new design in kids' bikes, with huge high rise ape hanger handlebars, long low rider banana seat, shiny chrome accents and, probably the most important innovation to the bicycle as we know it today...the 20 inch wheel. vintage schwinn stingray chain guardA precursor to the BMX bikes kids (and us adults!) still love today, the Schwinn Stingray got a conspicuously slow start in the U.S. marketplace. Imagine being a parent in 1962, in a time when Little Richard and Chuck Berry were still believed to cause riots and civil disobedience! Imagine the horror when your kid asks for this ominous and dangerous looking ride over a 24 inch one-speed cruiser! Will they break their neck? What will the neighbors say? Fortunately, all it took was a few families to succumb to their childrens' wishes, and as soon as the Stingray began hitting the streets, kids across America demanded no substitutes. Within a few years, multiple bike manufacturers, both foreign and domestic, were designing and building their own versions of the Schwinn Stingray!

vintage schwinn stingray banana seatThe vintage Schwinn Stingray can be seen throughout 1960s and 1970s popular culture, print, comics, cartoons, and movies. Schwinn Stingrays are prominently featured, and ridden by a teenage Matt Dillon, in 1979's Over the Edge, the ultimate teen angst film.

The vintage Schwinn Stingray is a highly sought after bicycle. Stingray parts alone can be very desireable. For instance, a good working front hub brake from a Krate Stingray can sell for as much as a complete bicycle, and many people choose to build their vintage Schwinn Stingray from scratch.

 

Let's start the debate over if you should buy a vintage Schwinn Stingray bike or should you buy a new Schwinn? This are difficult questions to figure out this holiday season. To make things easier, let's let these candidates give us a quick opening statement. The Great Schwinn Debate Starts Here...
