That Stingray is one fine looking machine...what's the deal with these helmets though? When I was a kid no one wore them and we turned out just fine....I think....

I saw these on Good Morning America one morning when I was stuck at work - I never thought these bikes would see the light of day! That is awesome!

ditto! never had one, but man looking at the cool factor of that bike is awesome, I wish my son Gabe was old enough I would do everything in my power to get him one if he wanted it. Thanks for sharing your sons joy.

A little update...
We were at my niece's Birthday Party at my Mom's and Nick wanted to show off his bike so we took it over there. I was parking it arround by the back garage door when I spotted it...
My sister's 1960's Sting Ray "slick chick"
a bit of rust and the tires are toast but what a great green color! I'll post some pics when I get her up and running!

Any advice restoring her would be greatly appreciated!

Like the old ones better, but my kid saw one on-line and wants one. How high can the seat be adjusted? Can the seat be adjusted?

My brother had an Apple Krate. I saw one recently. They didn't seem so small when I was a kid! These new choppers are boss, man.

Was at Wally Mart and they had about 10 lined up for sale at the main entrance, darn if I can remember the asking price. The website was cool though, and the commercial is neat.
