60sstuff

Finally riding a big boys bike
I have a May ‘65 and a June ‘65 in their Factory Original Paint “Radiant Coppertone”.
Both these 65’s have Original chrome throughout, white tufted Stingray saddles and Original tires.
Both these long frame Stingrays came out of neighboring cities and still wear their cool Decals and Stickers applied back in the day.

The EA = May 26, 1965 Coppertone was Originally sold out of Park Bike Shop in Evergreen Park Illinois.
It has a water transfer decal on the top tube showing the bicycle registration of 1966-67.
There is a really neat sticker of the dealer on the seat tube.

This bike is still using the front Center Stamp S-7.

The other ‘65 Coppertone is a FA = June 18, 1965.
This bike has two very cool stickers on the seat tube.

Top sticker is ”Jim’s” Beverly Bicycle Shop in Chicago.
Bottom sticker is Serviced by - Wheelsport.

This ‘65 is usually hanging from the ceiling, but had it down recently for a cleaning.

One month later and this bike came with the rare (Reverse Stamp) Side Stamp S-7.
This front wheel with the reverse stamp was only a 2 to 3 month example.

I absolutely love these old Decals and Stickers as they add character and history to a bicycle.

Finally riding a big boys bike
How do these bikes stay in this condition for 60 years? Serious question. How many people buy a Sting-Ray for their kid and it never gets ridden, and then stays mint for six decades? And another serious question: how do you end up with them all, 60sstuff? At least you share them with us, so that’s cool.
