Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
I have been under the impression that my 1965 twenty inch Fleet was the same frame as the early shorty Stingrays. I have a 5.5 inch crank on it and it puts the pedal about 2 inches off the ground. What length crank came on the '64 ? What is the height of the pedal off the ground. I see that the chain stays on my '65 are angled upward quite a bit pushing the BB closer to the ground. My '68 long frame has much straighter stays and hence much more clearance for the pedals. Did Schwinn use a different frame for '64 Stingray as opposed to say the Typhoon which I often see with a 4.5 crank. Any information would be appreciated as I want to understand the differences in the frames.
