Yeah, sure. When my family moved when I was in fifth grade I had to leave my bike behind. All my new friends had bikes. But my dad couldn't afford one for me so I was resigned to not having a bike. But one day I was out playing and my dad called me into our apartment. Parked in the living room was a green Schwinn Stingray with a banana seat and a sissy bar! He had bought it used from an ad in our town newspaper for $20.00.
Yes. I believe that in 1966, Schwinn came out with the "Stingray," equipped with a 5-speed derailleur, 20" tires with a slick for a rear tire, banana seat & hi-rise handlebars, and a large oversized gearshift lever (to emulate a Hurst shifter) on the top crossbar, designed to keep many a boy's voices from ever changing if they caught their pee-pees there!
yes I do and the streamers on the hand grips to see if you was really going fast
yes I do
Yes, but they were popular after I traded bicycles for motorcycles
Yes, and we didn't wear helmets either and look......... we survived!!!!!
Those were the days.
Wow. Poor child. I supposed if you said you wanted to buy him a Wii, he would be jumping all over it. Kids just won't go outside and play. They don't know what to do out in the sunshine. They forgot how to play tag, hopscotch, baseball, dodgeball, frisbee. No wonder the child obesity rate is through the roof.
