    Walmart asked not to sell bikes

    This is an interesting discussion and brings to mind the discussion I just had with my wife this morning. We’ve decided to buy a mens and women's Schwinn bikes from the sixties and renovate or restore them for our daily use. As far as I’m concerned todays stuff is just a POS.

    Walmart asked not to sell bikes

    You definitely speak the truth. I’ve not been that close into the automotive industry. I sell, repair and restore them for 45 years. But I’ve been close enough to to the industry to know they have themselves hamstrung.

    You are correct. Pacific Cycles needs to be responsible. I think that’s who owns Schwinn and other mfg now.

    Would you buy a frame or bike that the seller refuses to share the serial numbers?

    Both my Stingray and a Cycle Truck I inherited had poor serial number stamping. Who ever the guy was doing these two was a weakling or didn’t know how to use the stamping machine. Had to use chalk to finally get the numbers.

    Walmart asked not to sell bikes

    As far as I am concerned, all bikes built since the early eighties are “junk” bikes. Having restored cars, trucks, Tonka toys, pedal cars, bikes, etc., I have seen the lack of quality control and product design decline since 1980. Tell me this, how many bikes built today will be around 60 or 70...

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    I want to thank everyone who weighed in on whether the chain ring was original or repro. I really appreciate it. All the best to you!

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    Well, I’ll consider it original and go ahead and use it. I’m doing a restoration of my 1967 Stingray and I want to use all original and date correct parts as much as possible.

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    The first photo you showed me had an oblong positioning hole like mine. But the original one you showed me has a round positioning hole.

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    The positioning hole on your original is round. The positioning hole on the one I received is oblong. And the teeth are definitely different.

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    The one I received has an oblong positioning home. And the overall quality does not present well.

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    1. So there is no stamping on the originals? 2. Is the small positioning hole round or oblong on an original? 3. And were there different diameters of the Lucky 7 or were they always one size diameter?

    How Can You Tell an Original Stingray Chain Ring from a Repro?

    Just received a chain ring for a sixties Stingray I bought on ebay. It does not look original as was stated in the description. It looks to be a recent repro. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to tell them apart?
