Does anyone know for sure the correct fenders for a 1971 Schwinn Stingray Krate "Grey Ghost"? Were the safety edge or razor? Did the front have dimples or are those repops?

MISC:   Vintage Bicycle inventory coming to OldRoads posted by: Vin - Menotomy Vintage Bicycles at OldRoads.com on 7/27/2009 at 5:49:03 PM
We don't ship during the cycling season, BUT!, we've put together a deal with a Massachusetts bike shop who DOES ship and who DOES NOT use da web!.
We will be posting their vintage inventory here.
They are a family-owned shop selling Schwinn, Raleigh and other makes for over 50 years. The depth of their inventory is amazing, I leave drooling every time I visit.
High end road bikes, Schwinn Sting-Ray Krates, Raleigh Tourists and Sports 3-speeds, big old balloon tire bikes - they have them all.
So, watch this space. I'm hoping to get it going this week, if I can get my daughter to help me...

Anyone using Twitter? OldRoads has been for a few weeks and I think we can handle doing daily updates.
You can go to http://twitter.com/oldroads, or you can see the updates at the top of our “Whats New” page (under the “About” link at the top of this page).
Today’s message:

“I’ve been buying and selling collectible bicycles for many years and have never seen prices this weak. I’ve also never seen prices for old commuter bikes so high.”

The number 1 on the guard is either a 1969 or 1970. The smaller guard sounds like it may be a 1968. The first year for the Screamer. I would have to see pictures to know for sure.
