60sstuff

Finally riding a big boys bike
The First “SLIK” Tire.

Lots of New features for the Schwinn Stingray arrived in 1964 1/2.
New Super Deluxe, New Saddle, New Springer and the first SLIK rear tire.

In the August 1964 Schwinn Reporter the announcement was made about the New rear black SLIK tire to be offered from Schwinn on the J36-6 Super Deluxe Stingray.
The article states there’s plans for this New SLIK to be available on two additional models, J38-6 and J33-6.

The very first style of this New SLIK did not have the Yellow Oval with the black letters inside.
The first design of this cool tire is extremely rare. I once owned an Opal Violet (J4, Sept.) J38-6 that I purchased from the Original owner in Reno NV. that is shown in 3 poor quality photos that had one of these very early SLIK tires on it.
There is a raised molded Oval with the word SLIK in the middle as shown with a 3rd 1/4 1964 date code.
Several months later that Famous rear tire would now have the Yellow Oval that most of us are familiar with as seen on my Sky Blue J36-6

I have a couple ad mats advertising this New SLIK tire on the J36.

Note about another SLIK tire. I do not know the reason for this, but around April to June of 1965 there was a rear tire that did not have any SLIK on it. It looked exactly the same (Schwinn Stingray, Nylon, 20 x 2.125 etc.).
I have a near mint, never ridden FA (June ‘65 Violet J38-6) with Original tires including the Carlisle 3-5 rear Slik, but it does not have Slik on it.
I know of another gentleman that has one of these Slik tires on a DA Stingray.

Last, but not least, there was a White Wall Yellow Oval SLIK that came on the early SLIK CHIK Stingrays.
