This was my brother's bike. It's what I learned to ride on... and rode as much as I could.

After a few years of trying to use his bike all the time, I wanted a HARO bike but couldn't afford it, so I bought this and put HARO stickers on it:

several years later I saved up and bought one of these - which was one of the first mountain bikes around.

I remember a red frame, banana seat, and coaster brakes, so I may have had a Sting-Ray like your brother's, or one of the "Copied but not equaled" imitations.

But the best memories came from the Big Wheel with handbrake.

I remember that Team Murray X20R. Neighbor kid had it and I rode that off and on. Classic!
