60sstuff

Finally riding a big boys bike
I love every color that Schwinn offered on the early Stingrays (63-65), but especially the Flam Lime.
This color just seems to have a glow like no other.
I’ve been fortunate to acquire four different models (63, 64 and two 65’s) in this color that still have their Factory Original paint and screens.

I’m featuring my ‘64 J-39-6 Deluxe that l purchased from the Original owner decades ago.
Frame - H4xxxxx = Aug. 19, 1964
Fork - 8-4 = Aug. 64
Front axle - Z-64
Crank - SA 7 64 = July 64
Center stamp 36 spoke S-2 / 1967 dated knobby.
Center stamp S-7 / Original Westwind (3rd 1/4 ‘64 date).
Crimped seat strut with round vent hole.
Excellent factory tufted solo polo seat.

I got a huge bonus with this bike in the Original Guarantee card filled out by the Dealer and New owner. Priceless.
They had “Reliable Bicycle Shop“ add an automatic three red band 36 hole hub to this Stingray which I replaced with the stock red band coaster hub.

The typical 180 degree front tire touch on the down tube of the early (63-65) design forks.

This ‘64 Lime front tire will not pass by the down tube and fortunately the paint wasn’t harmed on this particular Stingray.

Beautiful bike, so the frame configuration would not allow the front wheel to spin around? I thought I had checked my 1965 Fleet and I didn't think it did. I will have to check again. Nothing like clear shots of clean bikes. Thanks
