Wore out three sets of tires already!
Definitely looks to be a middleweight fork. Unfortunately the chrome cap is not correct for the handbrake model, the cap on this fork is for a coaster brake version.

Look Ma, No Hands!
Yes, definitely the wrong chrome fork cap, but has dimensions of a Stingray fork, not a middleweight. Hmm..

'Lil Knee Scuffer
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!View attachment 1747231

September 1964 is my guess

Finally riding a big boys bike
September 1964 is my guess
Sorry, but that guess ^^^ does not compute.

See post #3 which speaks of the knurling that started in 1966. The OP fork has that knurling at the bottom of tube.
1964 forks never had that knurling.

Plus Stingrays did not have the front caliper brake until very late ‘64 for the upcoming ‘65 model year.
The OP fork has the hole for the caliper brake.

A Sting Ray would have the wider ID Middleweight fork and the fastback would have the lightweight fork.
2026-N # for a 66 Sting.
2087-N # for a 66 Fastback.

60sstuff posted a picture with Sting Ray's middleweight S-7 width. What's your fork measure?
