Did you run a query on the Picture Database here at OldRoads.com? You can view ALL musclebikes at once by doing a "Query by Style" and choosing "Muscle bikes".
The Picture Database is at the top of every page under the "Technical Resources" tab.

Oldroads has an English Roadster page; that's where your Raleigh fits. There is also a Raleigh serial number chart under technical resources.

AGE / VALUE:   One of the FIRST STING-RAYS? posted by: Brooks on 8/21/2011 at 4:57:16 PM
Hi Everybody, I'm kind of new to the Schwinn collecting form but I think I have one of the first Sting-Rays that came out. I read that Schwinn started making Sting-Rays in 1963. I have a one that I got at a yard sale #A26184 and by looking it up it was made in Jan 1962. Did I find something special? It's 100% original and has everything but the changuard.

Hi,Sounds like you have real beauty.Your bike was made around August 1966.It's a standard model without fenders,quilted seat and whitewall tires.The 3 speed wasnt common as the coaster brake version and very desirable today.Let's see some pics.

My brother pulled this from a friends trash for me. I believe its a Schwinn Thrasher. Had the top and gooseneck pads still on it but no chainguard. I can find info on the Scrambkler but not much on the Thrasher. Head badge # 2581. rear dropouts had # GO981 on one side and # 2511C51 on the other. Guessin it was an '81 bit dont know much else on the history.

AGE / VALUE:   deluxe / super deluxe ? posted by: paul downs on 6/23/2011 at 4:49:46 PM
Picked up at a garage sale by the serial # LB03010 stingray w/ springer fork. No tears in the seat, all chrome ( both fenders and chainguard) in place and not beat up, some surface rust under fenders. Rear reflector still hanging between sissy bar under seat. Blue in color. According to what Ive read on s# would have been made 1-2nd day of Dec 66 (last year for super deluxe?) decals are all faded or missing. Was missing back rim and tire when purchased. Trying to determin difference between deluxe and super deluxe. Bike is dismantled atm for restoration so sorry no pic at this time. any info would be greatly appreciated.
