I'm thinking this may have been my first bike. It was green, it was a Huffy & I was SO surprised!!!

The Schwinn Stingray was all the craze. I built my own from a bike frame, adding a banana seat and monkey handle bars. With my long legs I could set way back on the seat and do all kinds of wheelies.

My bike as a kid was a Schwinn Stingray much like this one, except mine was orange and had one of those solid slick tires on the back.

Banana seat bikes with sissy bars & lots of chrome. I had a nice Schwinn girls bicycle. It was stolen from me so my dad bought me another bike.it was pink and white and had a banana seat.I loved that bike!

And there it is... My very first bike. Only, mine had a white basket on the front with retro neon colored daisies, streamers, and my dad put those neon rainbow colored spoke decorations on so my bike would jingle as I rode.  ;)
