OK guys, forgive me for what I am going to say. I'm 62 years old and I grew up with these bikes. The black Stingrays are cool, I've never seen one before. BUT, they just don't look right to me. To me Stingray's have to be the flamboyant colors. Again, the black is cool.

Stoney... I hear ya... i'm 64 and grew up in the stingray frenzy .... The Schwinn dealer was right down the street from my dads shop so I was there frequently ... candies and metallics were king of the muscle cars in the early 60s , Schwinn was still using lacquired.. Black was available , but not popular with kids... I guess it depended on who picked out the bike

"I guess it depended on who picked out the bike"

I agree, I have talked to probably 5 or 6 original owners of Schwinn's and all but one said they went to buy a bike and "this is what they had" Myself I poured over the catalogs and knew exactly what I wanted and would not have settled for anything else. Maybe it depended on how bike desperate you were.

[/QUOTE there was always a big push at Schwinn around Christmas time ... if it was no surprise then you went with mommy and picked out what you wanted ... but if it was a surprise !!.. your dad went and picked it up .. and it possibly could be black :)...
