what I love about the stingray pic is it even has the prerequisite bicycle chain & lock (in plastic, of course) that we all had on our bikes back then.
I never raced a stingray, my first race was ’81 on a ‘Goose, but you know that lots of first races were on bike like that.
The funny thing is I built this bike AFTER my goose got stolen!! 👿 Then I started carrying the lock 🙄 (learned the hard way )
Hey remember when you had to clamp a pair of vicegrips on your seatpost for on the road repairs !!!!
