Muscle Bikes and More; This will be our third year for this “show within a show” featuring the drag race inspired bicycles. You will see Schwinn Stingrays and Krates along with Raleigh Choppers, Ross Barracuda’s and Apollo’s and many others. This is where it all started for many of us!

I think I will bring a few bikes this year - The first one will be the Fritz 50 to celebrate the life of Al Fritz and his awesome Schwinn Design.

Sorry it took me so long to get back with you Charley. <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/blush.gif The Fritz 50 is one of 500 Schwinn Stingrays built in 2014 to honor Al Fritz who passed away last year. Al designed the Stingray for Schwinn. A portion of the proceeds went to the Alzheimer’s foundation which Al suffered from. I decided to buy one because I love muscle bikes and that is what my mother suffered from also.
Here are a couple other Bikes I am restoring and will be bringing to the show!
