    Nice! What are your plans for it? Find all the correct early parts for it?

    yes sir, plan to restore it only thing I'm missing is the brake arm for the rear coaster brake. the sissy bar seat and fenders handle bars in the pics were just on it from me letting my neighbor kid get it rideable for a day or two then i dismantled it. I'll need a few things or I'll have it all rechromed . Hopefully the seat has'ent became lost .I hav'ent seen it or the sissy bar in about ten years.

    Looks like a real Lime 1963 Sting Ray to me.
