MAR.31: SCHWINN STINGRAY. Happy Easter everyone! On this final day of March, the last day of the 31 Days of Bicycles we wrap it up with a piece of bicycle history… the Schwinn Stingray! Introduced in 1963 and in production until 1981, the Stingray’s dramatically different design was inspired by kids in southern California who were customizing their own bikes to look like motorcycles. In 1968, Schwinn introduced the racing style Orange Krate, Apple Krate, and Lemon Peeler, which with their 5-gear hot rod shifter, fork and seat suspension, racing stripe saddle and smaller front wheel became the most popular Stingrays of them all.
