AGE / VALUE:   Huffy Rail chaingard part needed... posted by: Brandon on 2/6/2006 at 11:53:29 PM
I have a Huffy Rail with the flaming stack style chainguard that is missing the rear exhaust pipe part that mounts back by the sissy bar.

Any thoughts on where I could find one?

Thanks.

I think some of those chainguards came that way on later models without the tip I think for girl bikes. You'll just have to buy the one with the tip.

I recently got a Schwinn Orange County Chopper at Walmart for $81. 24 X 2.10 front tire 20 X 4.25 rear.Looks like a true mini chopper.But really not big enough for me and I'm only a 30 inch inseam.But I bought it to possibly turn over. Unfortunately it may be a tough sell but may help to increase traffic flow.I have a feeling yours is a more normal size.

AGE / VALUE:early stingray deluxe serial number posted by: tom on 1/26/2006 at 1:16:27 AM
I have an early copper stingray deluxe - I am guessing it is 65 or 66 based on options etc - the serial number is strange on this one though - I tried to look it up from both my references here and old roads serial number charts - the serial number on the rear dropout of my bike is A 23144 - it is very clear but there is only one letter (A) then a space followed by only 5 digits (23144).

Anyone out there run into this before? Anyone know the correct date for this #?

Any info is appreciated - thanks

according to the lists i have only 5 digits makes it a 1953 frame. there should be no space between the letter and number, if so, your missing a digit there, and probably cuts the value of your bike a ton. if the number is A231xx its missing the last number, thats a 1962 frame.

There were no Stingrays made until 1963; Deluxe models span from 1964 to 1974, so according to the coppertone hue as well as your serial # (which is missing the second letter standing for the year), your Stingray Deluxe falls between the 1965-1968 time span. Another factor to keep in mind: In 1965, Schwinn revamped their serial # method by using the double-letter/five digit system meaning your frame was possibly made in January of '65 when the serial # revamp was brand new from the old one-letter/six-digit system which would be the result of the missing second letter.

that frame however is quite old, canti framed youth bikes go way back, its the stingray seat, etc, which changed its looks
