Has anyone heard of or seen a Schwinn Stingray GEBEized? I spent some time yesterday with a potential customer and have to say all I could see was too many obstacles and difficulties with doing that project.

Here's a pic of a $69 Wally World bike....24" tires.

Seems like a person could do a handlebar switch, add a banana seat with the rear legs attached to a frame-mounted install.

Lot of work, but not much money to make it look sting-rayeeee.

I remember as a kid in San Jose putting long front extensions on a 26" cruiser, and finagling on a banana seat. Nowadays I can see how stupid I probably looked.

But then when you think about it, the banana would be sitting well over 36" in the air, probably at an angle to clear the engine, unless you moved the engine waaaaay back....

So, never mind, won't work.
