   RE:WANTED:   stick-shift for 19-- stingray, and wheres the serial #?!?!?! posted by Drew on 11/8/2002 at 2:26:18 PM
Stingray serial numbers are on the left dropout on the frame(near brake lever) on 1963 through 1969 models. The number was moved to the headtube (next to the headbadge) in 1970. 1966 through 68 had the straight ribbed shifter, early 1969s had a curved ribbed shifted, and finaly the last type was late 69 to 73, curved w/3 holes & barrel knob. IN Liz Fried's Stingray book you can see the different Shifters.

I have a schwinn frame with serial number MF63515 if anyone can give me info.about the number such as what it is,year etc.or where I can find info.would be appreciated thanks.


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   serial number posted by Drew on 11/8/2002 at 12:26:12 AM
Your frame is a Dec. 1970, M=Dec., F=1970......the two leter dating system started in 1965 with AA being Jan. 1965, AB would be Jan. 1966 etc. Schwinn skipped using the letters 'O' and 'I' so not to be confused with the numbers '0' or '1'.

I've been in contact with him twice after he offered to send me copies of his catalogue. Been a couple month since he offered tham and still nothing.
So don't hold your breath.

Slow yes, but I am following through in getting these out. The response for catalog sheets has been overwhelming.
These are in color with the price list too.

WANTED:   columbia playbike posted by: larry on 11/2/2002 at 7:15:47 AM
bought a columbia playbike and i need a chainguard and fenders for it
Can Anyone tell me the measurement dffrence between a regular 20" and a junior size bike??


   RE:WANTED:   columbia playbike posted by Leo on 11/28/2002 at 11:47:08 PM
A Junior size bike generally had 16" wheels where the Playbike had 20". The arc of the fender will be different between the two sizes. I have a Playbike 88 in original condition with the 3 speed stick shifter and triple braced chrome front fork. There is some light rust on the chrome fenders and fork. Most of the wear on this bike is from sitting in the cellar. White wall tires. Green paint. Chain guard is in real good condition.
