1968 Schwinn Lemon Peeler
This is the yellow bike in Schwinn’s Krate series of Sting Ray kids bikes.
As you can see from the catalogue page, Schwinn took their Sting Ray “Muscle Bike” idea and went from stock to modified. What is the next step after racing a stock muscle car? Why, racing a dragster, of course. Here is the dragster bike.
The Lemon Peeler had it all. Five-speed stick shift, sparkly yellow banana seat with a suspension sissy bar, front drum brake, front springer fork, fat rear slick tire for burnin’ rubber, massive bars to help you pop impressive wheelies… Kids today are totally deprived.
