I just saw this post and was wondering if you ever got an answer to this question. The second hand retail store that I work for just received a bike of the same model number and I was wondering what the approximate value would be. Thanks.

Do you want to sell the seat? I have a 5 speed with a parking brake. I think they were made from 1968 to 1973.

You mean is it a "true" ramshorn in like,is it a "worth lots of money ramshorn"? No.......
It's made by Sears. Good bike, fun to ride. You know, everything a bike SHOULD be, but if you're only looking to buy the bike because it's a TRUE Ramshorn (ie: I"M RICH!!) Look elsewhere......Your friend, CPT. Obviousssssss!

Thanks for the reply.The price on the bike was 80 bucks and I didn't want to go overboard.Also I didn't want to upset the spouse with another frivolous purchase.

AGE / VALUE:   1973 stingray fastback posted by: Adam on 8/7/2006 at 7:30:09 PM
Hello, I recently received a bike as a gift and was wondering about it because its just beautifull and i never had anything like this as a kid. Its in very lighty used condition, and says schwinn Stingray fastback on both the decals and tires. its very clean, painted a Lemon color, just a few tiny scratches and rust. the seat is a perfect banana style one, no rips. the shifter on the main bar says 5 speed, and the serial number on the front thingy says KJ520083. I asume from what i just read in the previous note that means its from 1973, which sounds right from the person who bought it for his 42 year old who never used it for some reason. Is this a collectable bike, worth anything? Even the tires still have those tit things on them. The guy said he stored it from the day he bought it on a hook in his garage. Thats where I noticed it and he just gave it to me.
Pic attatched. Thanks in advance, Adam M

'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.
