Sad News For Schwinn Sting Ray Fans


Recommended Posts

I read in today's Washington Post Metro section about the death of Al Fritz, who was once a welder for Schwinn then rose up to be Executive Vice President.


Mr. Fritz was instrumental in the creation of the Sting Ray series of bikes.   


My parent's could not afford one of these for me, but I sure loved to look at them in the stores that carried bikes.  Who could ever forget the rakish lines, the banana seat and that stick-shift model.


Please read the entire obituary here.
