I assume you meant *shifting* knob? You might try seaching ebay for "Scwhinn Stik Shifter". I found this and it look like what you want: http://cgi.ebay.com/Schwinn-Sting-Ra...QQcmdZViewItem

I could only dream of having a lemon peeler. Also "orange krate" and a green one (which I forgot the name). Coolest bikes made back in the day.

I did have a "two speed kick back" stingray until it got stolen in front of a Grant's store.

That would be the Pea Picker... There was also a white one; the Cotton Picker. Also the red Apple Krate.
