Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Wow!
That is fabulous!
If you haven’t already done so, that would be a great bike/documentation to post in the Bicycle Shop Stickers thread up in the General Discussion forum.
Thanks for the show and tell.
Amazing collection!

Finally riding a big boys bike
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
Paul,
Thank you for the compliments!
I’ve checked a few of the (64-65) Stingrays in my collection (4 short frames and 3 long frames) and they all experience the tire touch to the down tube. Some more than others.

Yes, and some day soon, I hope Chris will teach me how to take good pictures. As always, enjoying your collection.
Jammer,
Thank you also for the compliment!

I have nothing to teach about photography. More than anything it’s lighting.
Never take photos in the sun. Overcast sky is the best to experience those Flamboyant/Radiant Stingray colors.
Sometimes LED lights work and never have a busy background as that distracts from your main object.

Over the years I’ve seen some of the big time collectors take photos of their Stingrays from 10-20 feet away, ridiculous!
Get close and show the details of these bikes no matter the condition.

Chris.

I sold my '76 @Lonestar please verify if you get a chance. I could have sworn it spun around with no rub. Perhaps when they lengthened the chain stays in '69 to make room for larger front sprocket they also changes the configuration of the front part of the frame as well.. Perhaps I'm a bone head and they all rub. We will get to the bottom of it all someday.

No touch/rub on this '76...

Thanks sweet @Lonestar that's what I thought. Until I can match some frames up, it is difficult to do while assembled. I would guess a slight change again in '69 when the lengthened the chain stays for larger mag sprocket they also changed the rest of the frame geometry in some way mostly indistinguishable to the eye. Maybe they did it for this exact reason. It would only have taken a small change to the front of the frame to accomplish it, which clearly they did.
