AGE / VALUE:   Info on Schwinn Speedster muscle bike? posted by: Larry T. on 6/11/2005 at 11:42:40 AM
I just purchased a 1979? Schwinn Speedster five speed muscle bike. It looks like a stingray, with banana seat and sissy bar, but has 24 inch wheels. Rear tire is like a slick. Condition is excellent. Did Schwinn make these bikes or is this something that someone put together?

I'm not sure of the 24" musclebike form, but Speedsters in 26" lightweight form were definitely made (I have a '74 3-speed).

When filled, space will be available for vendors outside. The date is Saturday June 25th, 2005, 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. There will be several classes for bicycles manufactured up to the 1980’s, Classic Scooters (through 1965) And Classic Motorized Bicycles. This event has grown in the last four years and Pana’s Chamber of Commerce is putting a large effort in making it even better. As in the past very generous Trophies will be given in each class. The Pana (Illinois) Antique-Classic Bicycle Show is the Home of "The Illinois Classic Bike of the Year" (2005) Award with $150.00 and nice plaque going to the Winner and $75.00 going to Runner Up. We also will enter the winner’s bike in the "2006 Classic of the Year" at the 2006 Ann Arbor Swap Meet. This event is an effort to bring forth some of the finest classic bicycles that few people ever get to see. Bring them out to Pana for all to see! Information at: then click on 2005. This great event is held at the same time and just across the park road from the Pana Mid-State Classic Car Show. Admission is free to the public for both events and large crowds are expected for this joint venture. Be sure to be there as it will be a great day for Bike and Car enthusiast alike.

I came across a Stingray Pixie II at a garage sale and came on here to find out a little about it but only found two pix of a Pixie. Does ayone know when the Pixie II was made? It has a banana seat unlike the two Pixie's pictured here. Any info is appreciated. I also have a Lil Tiger if you have info on that as well. Thanks.

Possibly in the late-60's/early-70's era; if you're still uncertain, you can check out the serial #'s on this site to determine the month & year of the Pixie II and Lil Tiger; Serial #'s stamped on the rear left dropout are from 1969-prior, and the those stamped on the headtube are from 1970 & up.
