'KD' means that your Stingray was made in October of 1968; the 1st letter stands for the month while the 2nd stands for the year. All Fastbacks are different by way of straight downtube, chrome chainguard w/ frame color & 5-speed shifter on top tube(similar to Stingray Krates), as well as front & rear brakes; the 20-inch tires may sometimes differ.

I had a 1966 Huffy Rail muscle bike which I'm certain was the first year of production. Can anyone tell me the last year the Rail was produced? Thank you for your time.

Thanks Richard for taking the time to answer my qustion about the Rail. I figured the last year Huffy made the twin top rail frame was in the early 70s. Since that frame has a dated look, I am suprised that it would have lasted into the 80s. As stated in my previous message, I had received a 66 Rail for Christmas when I was 8. I am now restoring a 67 and was curious as to the finale year. Again Thanks...Bob

AGE / VALUE:   Vintage Bike ID & Value posted by: Jan on 7/26/2006 at 11:57:44 PM
I have inherited a vintage bicycle and am trying to identify it's make and model, and get a rough idea of it's value. The worn and faded sticker looks like it says "AMF" and from photos on the Internet, I think it may be a Renegade. It was probably originally purchased around 1968 or so. I have a couple of photos, but I'm not sure where to post them, as I don't have a web site. Can someone help me with this? I appreciate it - I need to find it's value very soon.
Thank you,
Jan

The 'J' means it was in the month of September of '68.

That serial number would make it a 1967 and it should have a stik-shift shifter.

In June '67, the 'summer of love' as well as the month 'F' stands for, stik shifters were standard on plain and Ram's Horn Fastbacks.
