    only the rich kids had schwins where I lived as a kid. the rest of us had kmart or western auto stingray knockoffs. Parents had no problem saying “no” back in the late 60s / early 70s.

    A real stingray made you instantly cool.

    Damn..had one of these when I was 14. Both my tires were same size and white walled. Had the 6ft tall sissy bar on it. Had black cloth tape on the handle bars and pushed the bars forward slightly. Then stretched aluminum foil through the spokes. Lightening auto drag flaps on the rear of the frame and finally a car antennae. Man I had to fight a lot to keep that bike from being stolen. I couldn’t take it out of the house sometimes.

    Just finishing up, ran out of room in the last comment? Yeah!!! Man!!! I’m so JAZZ!!! I’m gonna modifiy it a little? Just a little ! I’m gonna convert the shifter to a “Pistol Grip” shifter, and call it the `Cuda Krate, and show it off with my FY1 Lemon Twist `1970 `Cuda, at all the Mopar Car Shows. My `Cuda is Bad Ass!!! Now, its more Bad Ass with my Lemon Twist “`Cuda Krate,” right next to it.. Later. Work hard and follow your dreams… They do come true at times??? Dvs`Cuda

    I had an Orange Krate when I was 11y/o, bought it and had it close to 4 hours… I let my friend ride it around the block, back home in Chicago, and he came back crying and a swollen black eye??? He got Bike Jacked!!! He wasn’t the only one crying, my brand new Orange Krate was gone, Wahh!!! I am 43y/o now and ever since I’ve always wanted another one… July 3, 2009 I bought a LH 11/72 Lemon Peeler, Today is 7/16/09, I powdered coated the frame and restored every thing else… Its DONE

    Winderful to see appreciation of these kind of bikes, however incredibly selfish and mean to keep them all locked away so people cant ride them!!! 😛

    I am just in AWE at this collection. Amazing! This coming fall I may be making a trip Chicago to experience the neighborhood my parents grew up in. If I go I am definitely making a stop at this shop in Sycamore. Great job Blue Moon Bikes! Reminds me of when I was twelve years old, walking the rows of brand new Krates and Stingrays at the local Schwinn shop, which to this day is still in business under the same name – Wheel Away, San Jose, California.
