Do any of them have this in stock?

No... a big, fat no.

Looks like another Grinch-like Christmas under my tree this year. I could have been the hero of the neighborhood.

Yeah, I'm pretty bitter about this

Thanks for the fun link.
Old fart here remembers these from his youth during the Pleistocene, er. 60s. Perfect for the Schwinn "stingray" and "krate" bike series (orange krate was orange, etc.), which were modeled after chopper motorcycles. Evel Knievel, drag racing, muscle cars, chopped motos like easy rider were big then.

Perhaps Pres. Trump  will bring these back as part of making America Great Again. "'Merica F-yeah!" say the American Idiots.

Schwinn Orange Krate - my first bike.

It's where the addiction began... ; )

Awesome! No helmets goes without saying, but bare feet too?! Ah the '60's, well, I was only born in 66, but the '70's were similar. My first bike was a metallic gold banana seat bike. Definitely jumped using concrete block and wooden board. Remember "choppers"?

All we could afford, was baseball cards in the spokes. Held on using clothespins.
