I my first two wheel bike was a black Schwinn Typhoon. It was a regular bike (not a Stingray) and had 20″ Wheels. It came with training wheels. Somehow I managed to lose a training wheel and thats how I learned to ride a two wheeler. I think for several weeks I rode leaning to one side until I eventually learned to do it. My parents later converted the bike to a Stingray because that is what every other kid was riding. It had a white banana seat, Stingray handlebars and a Sissy bar on the back.
