Schwinn Sting-Ray 50th Anniversary Edition

Dec 4, 2019

Everything that’s old is new again. Retro is in these days, and Schwinn is looking to capitalize on the current trend with the Schwinn Sting-Ray 50th Anniversary Edition – dubbed the “Fritz Fifty.”

In case you don’t remember the original Sting-Ray (how could you forget it?), it was designed by Al Fritz 50 years ago, and went on to become a best selling bike during the 1960s and 1970s. The brand ended production on the iconic 2-wheeler back in 1981, and haven’t designed a new Sting-Ray since 1973. For 2013, Schwinn is bringing it back. Set to release as a limited edition run (only 500 bikes will produced), the bike will begin hitting select retailers during December. While no price has bee announced to this point, we imagine it will be a bit hefty considering the bike’s history. You can however head on over to the Schwinn Facebook page for a chance to win your very own as well.
