Finally riding a big boys bike
Original unrestored J-38 Stingray in the gorgeous Sky Blue.

DA - April 20, 1965. First month of the long frame Stingray.
Fork, 6-5 = June 65.
Crank, SA 5-65 = May 65.
Front axle, Z-65.
Front Westwind tire, UK** = 2nd 1/4 65.
Rear Yellow Oval Slik, first 1/4 65.

The Factory Paint is extremely nice throughout. The top bar, chain guard and screen are exceptional.
All the factory chrome is very nice.
The Original white smooth saddle had a couple splits at the bottom edges and at the rear below the seat tag.
I mended those areas the best I could as I don’t care for a recovered seat. The top of the seat is still very nice.

All those early colors Schwinn applied on their Stingrays (63-65) were the best.
The (Radiant and Flamboyant) Coppertone, Violet, Lime and the above Sky Blue seemed to glow because of the aluminum coat under the finish coat.

For me, this is the classic Sting Ray. In my neighborhood growing up, I remember 20 new Sting Rays (1963-1967) and their owners of which 8 were Sky Blue J-38 models. Of those, 4 were 1965, the most popular.

Thanks Chris again for sharing pics of this great bike.
