NOSTALGIA Rode By: Classic Pedal Day San Francisco Schwinn Stingray Krate huffy murray

I was headed to work yesterday when a man rode by on something resembling a 1970s Schwinn Stingray. But it wasn't complete. Still, I was taken back to the day when that Schwinn was THE bike to have. I had a look-alike bike, but not the real thing. This guy had the low front tire, the big back, the high handlebars, the frame. But, after a moment, my reaction shocked me. I wanted to yell out, "Hey, get a banana seat and sissy bar on that thing!" If you lived that time, you'll get it. Nostalgia, it is strong with this one. Enjoy the video and have a great day.
