I am looking at that chain guard, I think that chain guard started in '69 on the Stingray. In 1969 they did offer a fenderless 5 speed I believe but not in violet. Bars look '68-'69. I also see an extra rear single speed wheel. My guess, repaint, pieced together. Again, I am no expert.

Guard also appears to be a different shade of violet from the frame. Cable housing is newer black stuff, not correct looking grey.

Does it include the bonus wheel and slik?

A LOT of good meat on the bones here. If it's cheap and local SNAG it first, ask questions later!

I'd say anything less than $400 is stealing it. Lots of nice high $$ parts there. Even if not correct that would make a hell of a rider.

Haha, I just noticed the wacky modern, massive brake pads, too. Man, some people do not pay attention to originality...

5 speed models started in 68 on stingrays as did first yr of krates which were five speed. They did not offer violet after 67 and that chaingaurd like stoney said started in 69. Also like buses and bikes said the gaurd appears to be different shade of violet. Black cables and pads are also incorrect as stated by buses and bikes. Also the bow pedals are incorrect for this yr/model.
