Sting-Ray, known as "the bike with the sports car look" revolutionized cycling when it was introduced by Schwinn in 1963. It received praises and captured the imagination of youngsters of all ages across the U.S.A.
Schwinn didn't know it at the time, but they were introducing what would become a wildly popular bicycle, that sold like wildfire. The Sting-ray became Schwinn's best selling bike almost overnight.

This fun bike featured a short frame, high rise handlebars and a long bucket shaped saddle. It was designed to give the rider an exciting combination of features for quick maneuvers, fast starts and short radius turns. MPC brings the Sting-Ray to you in a 1/8 scale plastic model kit.
