AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Stingray BX posted by: kevin p burkett on 3/10/2003 at 11:23:01 PM
I saw a Schwinn Stingray BX or MX in an antique mall this weekend. Does any one care about these. Looked like a transitional bike. BMX style handle bars with chrome fenders and knobby tires. Looked mostly original and would clean up. Any input as to value and year. I assume it is 1980 or newer as it is not listed in the Stingray book.


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Stingray BX posted by Jeff on 3/19/2003 at 3:30:48 AM
The BX was a 1978 model year bike. They don't turn up very often and are usually cannibalized for parts. If it's nice, I would clean it up and hang on to it.

I have a "Mossberg" Stingray Style, 20" Bicycle. This appears to be complete but does need to be cleaned up. It still has the original Factory "Slick Tire" on the back. It also has the original "Banana" style seat and high handlebars. This is a 3 speed Model. I can NOT Find any info pertaining to this bike. Anyone ever heard of this Bike? I am considering the sale of this bike, but I would really like to know a little more about it first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can send pics upon request.

Doeaas anybody know what the brake bosster thingy is called that I have seen on some stingrays? I dont think it is factory, and its not welded to the frame, its like clamp that clamps to the fender mount.

here is a link and this bike has that clamp thingy, can anybody tell me what the correct name is?

MISC:   stingray frame posted by: jeff on 3/8/2003 at 5:51:23 AM
hi everyone! i was wondering if anyone know if there is a specific way of telling what a stingray frame is or was, this stingray frame i have i all i found it has a fork aswell, could it have been a krate or stingray jr or super deluxe or just a stingray deluxe, i dont know if the serial numbers give any info other than the year it was born, i think that i will put this bike together with all the correct year stuff but would like to make a krate, i have two atom hubs and a couple of 16 inch schwinn rims i could lace one up with the hub, if there is a way to tell if it was a krate i could put it together as one with correct year stuff and sell it on ebay, do you think that i would bring in any $$$$ any info would be great and thanks for reading, oh one other thing is the stingray jr frame a 20 in bike and is the frame seat post tube shorter i feel stupid for asking lol. thanks again


   RE:MISC:   stingray frame posted by Jack on 3/9/2003 at 12:57:05 PM
Jeff: You need to identify the type of frame ie: Fastback with 20 X 1 1/4/ 1 3/8 wheels, or J type with 20 X 1 3/4 /2.125 wheels. CB sting-rays had a flat bracket to hold the fender in the rear, krate or 3 speed frames had a raised bracket to hold the calibers and fender in the rear. There are several books on the Sting-Ray, which would be helpful. Schwinn Sting-Ray by Liz Fried is one. Hyperformance (Pete Aronson) or Memory Lanes Classics have books for sale. Let me know if I can help with any information.

MAN I DONT HAVE A CLUE ABOUT WHAT JUST HAPPENED HERE WITH ALL THE SAME REPLIES...... i have to look at the kb while typeing lol and i look up at the screen,, dude ok any ways i guess that this frame will not be a three or five speed so it leaves me with a stingray deluxe or superdeluxe would be cool i could put my solo polo seat on it and paint it lime green i will have to check this serial number out and see what year it is , i heard that the serial on the frame head what put it in the seventies i dont know... thanks again

   RE:RE:RE:RE:MISC:   stingray frame posted by jeff on 3/9/2003 at 6:44:38 PM
oh the bracket in the rear does not allow for a brake calliper

   RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:MISC:   stingray frame posted by jeff on 3/9/2003 at 6:54:30 PM
the fork on the bike had schwinn written on it on both sides sounds like it is like the post below that the guy found in the alley i guess i have me a clunker thats not worth much to the avid schwinn builder/ restorer the serial number puts it at 79

   RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:RE:MISC:   stingray frame posted by tom on 3/13/2003 at 2:08:41 AM
yes youre right its not worth to build up and isnt worth anything really its a stingray 2 its not worth to put that nice solo polo and lime paint on it and lime paint was only usesd on 63-65 frames this bike isnt worth restroing/ building up from frame






AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Stingray posted by: Damen on 3/7/2003 at 8:11:16 PM
My friend found (in the alley!) a red Schwinn krate-style bike which says "stingray" but has a regular fork (NOT spring-style) with "schwinn" painted down each side in yellow. All the stingrays i see have springer forks. Does anyone know the difference here, or ballpark value- he'd like to sell it but it needs a seat as well. Other than that it's in grat shape. Thanks,
-d


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Stingray posted by tom on 3/8/2003 at 1:15:31 AM
it sounds to me if the bikes 2 diffrent colors its a 1979 thats when htye had the 2 tone colors and its not worth alot about 50-100 id say

   RE:WANTED:   schwinn tools posted by Don on 3/4/2003 at 9:36:30 PM
You can buy one on e-bay for lots of money or use large channel locks to squeeze ring into frame and remove pin with a pair of pliers. Cover frame where channel locks meet it, it will chip.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   schwinn tools posted by Chris on 3/5/2003 at 1:46:46 AM
Good advice! It beats looking through 22,461 bicycle shops until you find 3 of them. Even then, I didn't know what it did.
Doesn't Park or somebody like Bicycle Research make a modern version there days? Go with the channel lock idea but I would call every shop within a 50 mile radius and ask them if they have that tool. That's what I would do!
Na, use the channel locks. Ask an automotive garage fellow to help you.
old bicycle books at the used bookstore, $7.00 can buy a lot of excellent advice!

i am restoring a ross apollo 3 speed and i am looking for an oem gear shifter, cable and brackets. i am also looking for the plastic piece in front sproket. This is my first restore any tips would be welcome also looking for manuel and how to find out the year. This bike is all original and i would like to keep it that way. Thanks in advance, slick


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   ross apollo gear shifter and cable posted by Stacey on 3/3/2003 at 1:20:50 AM
Check the pedal crank Slick... the Ross cranks are usually date stamped with month & year of the casting (My Barracuda was). For sure your bike wouldn't have been built before that date, probably though within 3 months after.

Back in the day,
I pulled open drawers and bought all of these I ever saw. Hundreds of these, still have them. I was gonna make jewelery out of them like I have done with black polished hub cones. I pulled these out of dumpsters and got them for free too.
Never knew what they were to. They are not for rod brake roadsters. Still I have brought home tons of them. Why? They were in the Raleigh parts drawer.
Turns out these go to the Raleigh Chopper bikes that I have re-discovered as of late.
E- bay item#2162778035 N.O.S. cups spring Raleigh Chopper look.
No relation to seller, not my auction.

I don't suppose you'd consider helping out an english (well welsh) chopper fan with a pair of those cups? I'd be willing to pay and for the shipping. I've got to ask, you american guys wouldn't believe how rusty bikes, especially choppers, get over here in all our liquid sunshine!
