Growing up, I never had a Schwinn Sting Ray bike - I was just a little too old for the "shrimpy" small wannabe bicycle when it came out in '63 . BUT, my little brother Rick - he had a sting ray. Oh, yeah. He though he was to coolest kid on the block. Which made our other brother, Terry somewhat jealous. But, Terry was the middle brother so.. Unfortunately (in Rick's eyes and fortunately in Terry's) we went swimming one summer afternoon at Pier Park Swimming Pool and when we came out, the "shrimpy" bicycle was no where to be found. Terry had to give Rick a ride home on his steering wheel.
