Schwinn Introduces Limited Edition Stingray/Banana Seat Bikes

At Dealer Camp in Park City, UT, we were excited to see this Stingray outside of the Schwinn tent. Turns out they’re running a limited edition of 225 each of 4 colors: Apple Crate, Orange Crate, Grey Ghost, and Lemon Peeler. You can own a little piece of your childhood for $399 at Schwinn stores – available now.

No Grape Crate or Cotton Picker?

It’s like the Jordan coming back for the 3rd time. When was their first return? 98? 99?
I have a reproduction Orange in a box…so, nothing special.

First of all, didn’t they do this already a few years ago? Secondly, do I have to travel back in time to find a Schwinn store?

I just had the winning bid for a Limited Edition Grey Ghost. Unassembled and deeply soiled from years of storage, in its deteriorating original box. Many hours of detail cleaning and careful final assembly have produced a Fine Edition to my Collection – and the Price was Right
