    IMG_1617.JPG IMG_1661.PNG IMG_1667.JPG IMG_1668.JPG IMG_1669.jpg IMG_1702.JPG So I randomly came across this disaster of a stingray for $9 at a garage sale ( thought it might be a typhoon , no fork crown ) that I bought for the cali Lite pads for a bmx project ! Got it home and realized it was a December 64 violet stingray ! Few days later found a 1955 girls bike with a persons solo polo a stamp persons sissy bar for $40 also had 64 cranks on it ! A buddy of mine had a center stamped S-2 with a 1964 dated knobby and some unstamped bars ! Still need a few things but almost back together !! Original Paint is almost non existent , probably a waste of time peicing it back together !!

    Pretty cool the way the bike came together from pieces you easily found. Good deal

    Good job being able to get it back together. Here is my Nov '64 ratty Ray. This one looks like crap but is original down to the tires. V/r Shawn
