AGE / VALUE:   Junior/midget/ whatsit? posted by: Ricky on 3/20/2003 at 4:05:55 AM
I picked up *what looks like* a Sting-Ray frame today but its a bit smaller. I'm wondering how to nail down the actual ID of this thing.
the details: A cantilever frame (not a pixie or tiger)
Not many pieces, crank (lucky seven c/wheel)
The crank throw is 3-3/4"
One pedal, it is 4" overall length
The kickstand is a "\\\\375////"
Thats all, no fork, no other bits.
The measurement from the center of the BB to the rear of the dropouts is 14-1/4...to the top of the seattube its 11-1/2.
the s# is JL (76). Apparently it was originally green but its currently rattle-can silver.
I would appreciate any guidance.
My collection (preferred way of saying "pile")of bikes currently numbers fifteen from '34 to '88 and includes ballooners/lightweights/roadsters/varsinentals/Twinns/Mountains, but no "muscle" bikes for comparison in my garage.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Junior/midget/ whatsit? posted by Kim on 3/23/2003 at 1:41:46 PM
Is the headtube electro-forged?
Is the kickstand bolt-on or integrated?

   RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   Junior/midget/ whatsit? posted by Ricky on 3/23/2003 at 4:04:53 PM
Its all EF'd and it has the welded-on k/stand. Apparently, its a "StingRay Midget, but not proven yet.
Ther're some pics here
Take a look, let me know what you see.

E- bay item #2165674711
1969 Murry F1 Eliminator Mark 1 musclebike.
Not my auction, no relation to seller.

Well, this is interesting to see as I have this chainguard. Same shape and color but I'm not sure if it's a mark 1 or Mark 2.
Anyways we got a ladder and I pulled it down from the wall and took it home. One lone scratched and rusty chainguard.

This bike is about as mint as they get. All complete no trace of rust. Origainal paint. Beautiful!
E- bay is helping me to get an exact idea what goes on what bike. I recognized the chainguard and now with this picture I understand what model it goes to. Wonderful!
How often do these in this shape pop up on e- bay?

For anything you may want to know about the F-Series Eliminator, check out my webpage. It's the only page about them on the net as far as I know.


The bikes appear on ebay occaisonally in almost every imaginable condition. Just keep looking for all the different model names they were produced under and you'll see a bunch of different kinds.

I recently added to my page a pair of stencils to download so folks could recreate the '68 F-1 Eliminator's fork darts. The pictures and measurements I created the stencil from was in fact sent to me by the person running the auction you mentioned. They were nice enough to take a few good closups of it.

If anyone has info to share about these bikes I'd love to hear from you.

Wonderful! Keep up your great work!

Excellent website Shannon.
You obviously spnt a long time doing it..congratulations.

Thanks for the good word on my page. I enjoy working on it as I have a deep seated love for the F-Series Eliminator. (Stems I guess from me having one as a kid.) Keep watching the page in the future as I'll be adding more pics and working to organise the information better.

Once again, if anyone wants to share info and or pics of their F-Series bike, please contact me. Also, If anyone wants to link the page on your own bike page, please feel free to do so. Just let me know that you have and I'll recipricate the link to your page in return.

There's a Vroom motor on eBay now. Not working, but I can't imagine it being too difficult to fix; after all, it's not a real engine, so probably only has a bad electric motor, or wiring break in it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=719&item=3124026160&rd=1

Its pretty simple operation, find your chosen supplier, and they will send you a form to fill out. All you need then is a DBA, a federal tax number or EIN, Pictures of your storefront, copy of your company insurance policy, and a satisfactory credit report. Then once you meet their guidelines, you can make a minimum order, anywhere from $500 on up. OR you can just buy the stuff online wholesale from any one of a number of places that are out there busy taking away the living from all the LBS nationwide. hope you can fix it.

AGE / VALUE:   1974 schwinn stingray posted by: kev hill on 3/12/2003 at 1:28:44 PM
I've got a 1974 schwinn stingray winging (floating?) it's way across the atlantic to the uk at the moment, but it's without wheels. I've been offered a set of wheels from a 1976 'ray, with a bendix coaster, and I was wondering if these are the correct issue for my stingray. Are all wheels individually dated / different or are these wheels what would have originally been fitted?
Also, from the pictures I saw when I bought it, it doesn't have a brake hole in the front fork - does this mean it's a coaster? (I realise that a coaster fork could have been put on the bike) - thanks

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   1974 schwinn stingray posted by Drew on 3/16/2003 at 12:36:37 PM
I'm pretty sure that the only difference is that the brake arm on the rear wheel of a '74 would say "Bendix 70" (this used from '70-'75) and in 1976 Schwinn started using one marked "Bendix 76 Mexico". Schwinn started to outsource parts of their bikes to save money. You could ju8st find a Bendix 70 brake arm and put it on the wheel. Also, if there is no brake whole on the freont fork, it must be a coaster.
