Check out this real American classic bike. A 1971 Schwinn Deluxe Stingray bicycle with 20” wheels. Some kid was rolling cool with this one. Lemon color is yellow metal flake. Have a look at this beauty:
Chrome plated fenders, cantilever frame, bucket saddle, and built-in kickstand. Reliable single speed with coaster brake. Colors available were Campus green, sky blue, and lemon.
Suggested retail price with coaster brake $67.95
I’m a little bit too young to have had one of these, but I remember seeing them around. By the time I got a bike all the kids road BMX bikes. But I can really see why these were popular for so long. This was made in the Chicago factory.
From the Schwinn Catalog:
Designed primarily for fun. Featuring high maneuverability, short turns, quick starts and stops. With small wheels, short wheel-base, high-rise handlebars and long saddle struts. Responsive to ride, with the pep and control of a line sports car.
