    Hope this topic hasn't been covered, I tried searching to no avail.

    I have an 20" S2 Rim and the Schwinn S2 stamping is on the outside of the hoop, instead of in the center. All the other wheels I have show the stamping in the center. Is the "outside stamp" wheel a reproduction or off a later year stingray?

    I believe it was late 1965 or 1966 when Schwinn started side stamping the rims.
