TBR, I am quite upset that even your kids have toys I want!!!!!
Gort, the rear wheel is 20", the front is 16". The vintage ones also have standard 20/20 versions, and multi-gear versions; with stick shifters that sit on the frame in front of the seat. The Schwinn Sting Ray was the first "muscle Bike" (or chopper) and is considered the grandaddy of the BMX bike.
I'm hoping to pick up a vintage frame (or more) at a local yard sale or maybe ebay and completely build a custom one.

Let's see a pic, bubba!
So a few weeks back, I went down to Myrtle Beach, SC to visit my wife who was down there working for a couple weeks. It was Atlantic Bike(motorcycle) Week (the un-pc name was Black Bike Week, but they changed it this year). I took my green stingray in the hopes of having a few laughs; I didn't even make it out of the hotel parking lot Friday night before a guy stopped me. He had, in his motorcycle trailer, a vintage 5-speed Apple Krate :
He'd done some modification, check the Huffy disc brakes:
He told me he was GIVING it to his cousin the next day

I have an all original 1966 Black Stingray Fastback with sprint parts (feb. made), still has the original tires on it. Black was a 2 year only color for Schwinn muscle bikes (66 and 67) I prefer the fastbacks and Stingray over the Krates. Just to heavy in my opinion. I will try getting some photos on soon.
