Sting ray
My child hood bikes were a hand me down Schwinn sting ray and a tank of a Schwinn Typhoon that both my older brothers had ridden and the eldest probably received it second hand. I did actually ride it to commute to Jr. high probably all of two miles round trip, I cringe to think how dry that bb must have been.

My teenage 10 speed was an earth toned huffy I barely rode (we had moved by then to a house on a big hill and I was a runner back in those days) and it can stay lost in the mists of time. I have much more fun finding bikes I would have enjoyed in college had I only caught the riding bug a few decades earlier. YMMV.
