The Stingray debuted in 1963 w/ single-speed wheels, a set of short fenders, and three different colors (Flamboyant Lime, Radiant Coppertone, & Flamboyant Red); by the way, yours was made in the July summer of '63.

AGE / VALUE:   for sale/for trade 1971 huffy slingshot 3 speed posted by: mike on 10/30/2005 at 1:54:55 AM
for sale here is a 1971 huffy slingshot. was my project but i lost interest. just need minor work to be perfect. everything on the bike is correct except the pedals, seat, handlebars, grips, and sissy bar. most chrome is very nice with the exception of the crank arms which have some pitting. the front tire is nos. the paint has been repainted a nice "jade green". the rear tire is correct but has cracking on the sidewalls.ive ridden the bike and there is no problem, the tire should last. there are no holes going through the actual tire. the 3 speed rim works but it needs a shimano 3 speed fulcrum assemble. i fabbed up a ghetto mechanism but it only works for two gears. all of the cables are nos. its just needs a rear brake cable. im askin $150 plus shipping.

i will trade for or towards a '64-'68 schwinn stingray, or any krate, project, parts, or frame sets(only original paint), mainly looking for a '65-'67 violet

or a jc penny foremost swinger/murray eliminator mark II style bike or frame.

WANTED:   SEARS / MURRAY CHAINGUARD!!!!! posted by: j on 10/28/2005 at 7:23:25 PM
I'm looking for a sears / murray chain guard (prefebly chrome) for a 20" sears "stingray". the chain guard has a little wing that extends past the frame and a clamp on the front where it wraps around the frame, it looks like an older schwinn chain guard but without the 'dip' in the middle. a chrome one would be nice but I'll consider a painted one.

also, is there a place I could get a can of the odd color paint the bike is? (weird pinkish purple redish) I tryed sears and the autoparts place but neither had anything close enough....thanks, weststreetbikes@hotmail.com
