Those two Stingrays are 1964 Flamboyant Lime “Deluxe” models.

Ribbed Solo Polo seat with the square back seat strut.
Chrome plated fenders.

Those bikes in that “as new” condition are worth thousands!

Awesome old photo, thanks for sharing!

I'm looking for another Huffy Drag Bike.. I had the Green Stiletto.. I liked the Huffy, it had the long frame and came with Shimano gears.. You could tilt forward in first and do a brake torque burn out with ease, I did them in second on red brick streets...

I live next to Bicycle Heaven. It's on our bike trail.. They have everything. They still have new Banna bikes in the box.. They have hundreds of Schwinns all in mint condition..

The Huffy Rail is killing it! I love the roller and the 'chute!

Fun times!!
Kids today have no idea.

Could the parachute be activated to pop open ?
Or was it for looks / storage compartment

Got one hanging from rafters.

Had an Orange Krate when I was a kid.
Paper route, carriers on the side.
Sundays I'd hang a second set of carriers off the sides with S-hooks.
Get off the bike, it would wheelie and sit straight up without falling over.
Traded that bike for my first motorcycle.
Boy was my dad pissed!

If you get a chance to watch Ford vs Ferrari keep an eye out for Ken Miles son’s Sting-Ray. Pretty sweet!

I just saw the movie last night and noticed that.
(It was on HBO, so imagine they'll be showing it more times in the near future - check your listings.)

That rusted one in front looks like a Sears "Screamer". My brother had one.

Someone had one of those on display at the POCI convention last year in Gettysburg, PA.
