AGE / VALUE:Chopper posted by: Andrew on 5/10/2008 at 1:58:21 AM
I have an original old Chopper push bike that was given to me about 20-years ago so I am thinking it must be around 30-years old. It looks like a copy of a Raleigh Chopper made in Taiwan by Lucky Five Bestcycle. It has the chainguard and front brake assembly missing but otherwise is very original including the Lubao 3-speed changer. The chrome is sad and the paint is dull but the seat is good. Is it worth anything as is and is it worth doing up? I have not seen another one the same apart from the Raleigh Choppers on Ebay.

Hiya,
Your right about the built date and no you cannot tell what model it is from the serial number. The only Stingrays built in 1975 were....Sting-Ray (1-speed and 5-speed) in Flamboyant Red or Yellow. It could of been built for the 1976 market which means it could be one of these!...... Sting-Ray (1-speed, 3-speed and 5-speed) in Flamboyant Red, Sky Blue, White (with Bicentennial decals) or Yellow.

The '76 R/W/B scheme was carried out on most Schwinn models from that year. It does add value to your stingray since the color scheme was one year only and were not produced in big numbers
