Rare Limited Edition 20″ PRIMER BLACK COLOR FACTORY PAINT, W/ Highway Pegs!

Orange County Choppers and Schwinn have combined to produce one of the coolest bicycles ever brought to market. It has a wide, motorcycle-size rear tire and a riveted saddle seat. The custom-stretched chopper frame includes a wedge-shaped piece of metal where a motorcycle’s gas tank would be. The bike even parks like a real motorcycle, thanks to a double-leg kickstand that raises the front wheel when locked down. A closer look reveals amazing detail. The word “Sting-Ray” in white lettering on the tires. Black dice inner-tube caps. Clear-coated flame decals. The Sting-Ray weighs a healthy 45 pounds and feels like it would last forever. This chopper is a great cruiser. Schwinn is producing just 3,500 of these first-edition Sting-Rays. These are destined to be sought-after collectables like the old Schwinn Sting-Rays of the 1960s and ’70s. Here’s a chance to buy one for yourself as an investment while the price is still affordable. Or get one for your kid so he or she can have the coolest ride in the neighborhood. Remember, the chrome bikes are the only models with front fenders and front foot pegs. The black, blue, green and red bikes have no front fender.

Part chopper. Part cruiser. 100% muscle bike — The new Schwinn Sting-Ray is an exciting, chopper-style ride. Built with customized parts — like the Big Boa Rear Tire and signature V-back Handlebars — it’s no wonder Schwinn Sting-Rays are endorsed by Orange County Choppers. Straddle the saddle and hit the pavement… the rebirth of cool has arrived.

History of the Bike:
It all started in a little chop shop near Madison, WI. A couple of Schwinn engineers had a vision for a revolutionary bike. One that would take its cues from the great American chopper. With a raked-out fork, knees-to-the-breeze seat position and enough bad-boy character to raise eyebrows, their creation was no ordinary bike. Like its namesake, Schwinn’s newest creation was born from one desire: to create something totally different, something that only the newest generation would appreciate. And so, a new breed of Sting-Ray was built for a new breed of rideer

Discover the bike everyone is talking about. It’s the Rebirth of Cool. Born from the classic Schwinn Sting-Ray of the 1960s and ’70s, the new Schwinn Sting-Ray is an exciting, chopper-style ride. It features V-Back Drag Bars, a knees-to-the-breeze low-ride saddle, a unique wishbone kickstand and the signature Big Boa Tire — just like a motorcycle!
