    Schwinn Stingray. 1970 3 speed. 48" tall sissy bar. This is a very basic stingray in very nice condition. All 3 speed bike in the museum are positioned in 3rd gear, so as to reduce tension on the Sturmey Archer internal gear springs.Campus green is more suited to  10 speed bikes. I miss the Flamboyant Lyme green.

  Sears Gremlin. 16x20 set up with the XKE 90 tires and flaming stack chainguard indicate that this was made by huffy. Note the slingshot front fork.

    Sears Spaceliner. OK! NOT a musclebike, but the beautifully restored middleweight (Thanks Leo) fits in the Eames room at the museum like a late 60's piece of art.She offsets the white shag rug and the yellow boomerang table. I need a boys bike!

  Raleigh Chopper sprint GT 3 speed. Ooogly by most standards this weak attempt at bridging the gap between musclebikes and drop bar bikes surfaced 5 years after the first Schwinn Ramshorn Fastback.The bike is a 20x16 with a rare redline road tyre (stolen from the folding 20) and a 1+ 3/8 blackwall tyre. The frame has elements of the first 1969 tall frame chopper steertube and the later MK2 chopper curved drop out. If one puts one's ars on the sissy bar, this is fun to ride. Thanks Dave Salmon of Bittacy Cycles, London!    
   
    Hawthorne. 5 speed, 16x 24, full suspension, kooky handlebars and insane mismatched factory colors. I long to pop a few xanex and ride this in the next Ground Hog day parade.

  Royal Sport Jet Star 1972, 5sp, drum brake, fake suspension, WW tires goofy handlebars and wicked seat with racing stripes. This is a West German musclebike. I believe they are reproducing these today. Thanks Matt Devlin.
