Look Ma, No Hands!
Hello. I bought this primered-only Schwinn Sting Ray fork from a shop years ago and am trying to id. Left dropout code 9 + 4 Pic isn't the best but the stamping is very clearly 9 + 4 I assume it's a 1974 fork from the date code, but am a little puzzled by the 9 + 4 and wasn't sure what the plus was for. 5 1/4" steerer tube length, 12" from axle center to top of crown. Chrome fork cap, for caliper brake use. Original Schwinn sticker says "....... ...... BOYS CAL.PC" The block letter Schwinn font on the sticker suggests post 1973. Perhaps a replacement fork sent to a dealership? Any shops that painted these with Schwinn's blessing? Any help would be appreciated!

Look Ma, No Hands!
Got the date down, but I'm not sure if it is a Stingray (20") or Fastback (20 x 1 3/8") fork. I'm leaning toward 1 3/8". I don't have the right wheels to check, but it's 12" from axle center to the top of the crown. I tried searching for the fork length specs/differences but no luck. Steerer tube length is 5 3/8".

Finally riding a big boys bike
Just took some photos and measurements on my 9-5 fork.
This Stingray fork is for a caliper brake (2 speed) model that accommodates an S-7 rim with a 20x1-3/4’’ tire.

Full length - 18’’
Axle to crown - 12’’
Steerer tube - 5-3/8’’
Top width, roughly 2-5/8’’
Bottom width - 3-1/2’’

It looks to be a fastback from what I can tell, but difficult to tell from your pictures. The fork end on a fastback will be thinner than a Stingray fork I would have to see a direct side shot of the fork to be able to tell.
