FOR SALE:   Schwinn Sting-Ray Fairlady posted by: Lisa on 6/9/2000 at 9:46:02 PM
My husband recently purchased a Schwinn Sting-Ray Fair Lady bicycle at a garage sale. I was wondering if I could get a little bit of information about the bike and the bike's value. The pat. no. is D 204121, and the color is purple. Any information would be helpful. Thanks so much! Lisa

I picked this up not so long ago and now I need to make room. I really like this one but its got to go. It is an older restoration that actually does not look it. No over restoration on this one. Beautiful deep red/cream paint without the clear coat to give this bike an authentic appearance. Has horntank, truss fork, fender light, Jeweled grips(red, repop),A.S. pedals and stem, no carrier. This bike is dent free aside from a small and shallow 1/2" surface ding in the center top of the right side tank. The chrome has been redone with the exception of the hubs truss rods and fender braces. Nice recovered Messinger Deluxe saddle with wear tabs. Small feather chain guard, drop center rims(painted & striped). I have pictures.
