'One's junk is another's treasure' is definitely the case here. The serial # was stamped on your Schwinn in April of 1964; the OG color buried under that disappointing black is actually a Radiant Coppertone hue that was introduced in '64, whereas Sunset Orange came about in 1973. By the way, you can click on to the serial # charts on this site to doublecheck that fact, but whether or not the frame is a 24" is beyond me. Good luck!

thanks for the info.i did look on the seriel# chart and couldnt find a match. i know now it is a 20 in frame ,lined it up with one of my stingrays.i am thinking of making a nice lowrider out of it.i have a real nice 76 stingray that i stripped down to bare metal and totaly did over. i painted it an orange flame pearlcoat color,and put all new tires seat sissybar,everything pretty much.it came out beautiful.hope to do the same with this one.

Schwinn serial # charts are broken down in different ways: 1948-51 #'s have xtra letters & numbers; 1952-March '58 #'s have one letter & five digits; April 1958-64 #'s changed again w/ six digits following the letter which represents the month while the 1st digit reps the year (your trashed frame falls in this category); 1965-69 #'s consists of double letters & five digits (second letter representing the year); and the last serial # system was relocated to the right of the headtube w/ an additional digit from 1970 to '83 or '84. I have three Stingrays myself: a '76 Bicenntenial like your '64, suffers from what I call TPD (that's the Trashed Paintover Disorder), an ugly red burying the OG white soon to be restored back to the OG; and two '78's: a Scrambler that suffers from a broken left dropout and the most sloppiest TPD (a black/purple, or rather 'blurple[?]' over OG silver), and a Sky Blue Stingray that was just trashed, TPD-free, & soon to be restored as a lowrider or OG status.

I DONT THINK IT IS A MANTA RAY.I WAS THINKING IT COULD BE AN OLD CRUISER STYLE MODEL.WHEN I FOUND THE FRAME ,IT HAD RACER STYLE (LIKE ON A 10 SPEED)HANDLEBARS. THE CRANK HAS FOUR CIRCLES DESIGN.
