FOR SALE:   4sale- Schwinn Stingray approx(1975) posted by: Chris on 4/4/2003 at 10:15:14 PM
I have a Schwinn Sting Ray. There is a bike licence on it that dates to 1979 but I think theres also one under it. Hard to tell when it was made. Found in sandy basment that kept all the stainless from tarnishing. Excellent conditon, Original Tires. Would rate 1-10, 8. I think this is a wonderfull Bike and I believe it was well taken care of. Just wondering what the approximate Value of the bike. I may be interested in selling it, only to a sting ray fanatic though.
