@Awhipple.. I bought the 66' specifically for the originality, but I'm just so used to seeing the license in this position behind the seat-post that it makes the one on my bike look like a mistake to me. So far the only thing I've done to my bike is replace the tires with NOS tires, so don't...
I found this original 1966 Deluxe Stingray a while back. I thinks it's cool that it has the original license but I'm used to seeing them installed behind the seat post.
Does anyone know how to safely remove the license plate straps without damaging so I can re-install ?
I think I finally figured out that a 24 inch 1950's Schwinn American has the balloon fender with indents for the frame.
I know other models have them, but I haven't seen anybody selling them with the indents... lately
@ Wards Guy
Does the rear fender have the little indents where the frame mount is ?
Would you mind measuring the distance between the lower frame mount hole and the upper frame mount hole ? I think it's 13 inches on my frame..
BTW, thanks for posting..
I just saw this guy at LBC swapmeet, funny thing is he said he's looking for a black Manta Ray seat.
I'm also currently working on a 24" inch Typhoon / Stingray build, although it looks like I might be reconsidering going with black ;)
I'm planning on lacing up some rims soon and I was wondering if 12 gage spokes would be too bulky looking for an S-7 with a Westwind tire.
(This isn't my bike, but I know that these are S-7's with Westwind tires) Do these look like 12 gage spokes ?
