I have this 1963 1/2 Schwinn Stingray "DELUXE" for sale, take a look!
If your a hard core Schwinn guy, you know what your looking at.
I puller the seat-post away to show you the serial number,
Its L343595, built 11/19 1963.
It is the First year Schwinn called the 20" bike a "Stingray". And this one is a "Deluxe" Model,
Note the chain-guard says's it, and it came with Chrome fenders and a Deluxe "Tufted" style "PERSON" Seat.
It also has correct 63 Only Seat post, Not squished near the seat where bolts go through.
And has the 36 spoke rear wheel, with Stingray Knobby Tire.
With Bendix Brakes.
Another 63 only is the fork headset
Where cup goes over the bearing on top,
In 1964, they changed to both Cup style top and bottom..
Has the nice Big wide handlebars Too, with White Grips
Its a perfect bike to Restore that way you wish. Its hard to find one this Complete, Sure it needs to be restored, but you basicly All parts, and they are the Original ones from this bike!
The bike has never messed with. Its 98% original, I say that because 1 pedal is right, (its the one that spins the rubber) and one is made to not spin? That may have been changed way back when, because the pedals that spin when you put force on them were discontinued do to broken ankles of kids? Anyway, enough history, this is a bike that is well worthy of getting a full restoration, and will be worth a ton when done. I read somewhere there is a few as 500 known to have been made, since it was started late in the year, and schwinn was not sure of the outcome?
But we all know what happened in the later years?? So Please offer if your a SERIOUS BUYER ONLY. we have , So offer what you will, but hope you dont wait till the last moments, (It happens everytime) and email to say they missed it, offer early, DON'T MISS IT!! You may never see a nother one here again?

We had a buyer come by to check the bike out today, said its nice, AND ORIGINAL TO 1963, except, Yes, as I stated, left pedal is a few years newer. Also that the back bar for the seat is Right for 63, with No squished near the seat, but it does not say "Persons" on it, I am No expert, so I am not sure if this is right or wrong, But I felt this is something to tell all buyers, And please, any other questions, Please email or call me, thank you and GOOD LUCK.
