Seems to be a Schwinn "Typhoon" 20" version. They had the 20" sting-ray styled frame; but with a regular seat. They are the daddy of the Sting-ray. There value does not rival that of sting-rays; but still a good find.

see if the # is at the headset(69' and up) or on the rear dropout (68' and down) i believe. oldroads has a neat serial # i.d. chart that you can track the exact yr.

AGE / VALUE:   What kind of bike is this? posted by: owen on 6/19/2008 at 5:58:50 PM
A friend gave me this bike. I'm going to sand-blast the frame and powder-coat it. I'd like to identify the make/model to make it easier to find parts. It has two stickers and a serial number. One sticker says "Jet-Star" another says "Rallye Sport Made in Germany" The serial number has the word OK inside a triangle, then the numbers 3340556 (as far as I can tell) Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated! =)


WANTED:   Mr. America Bike posted by: Kriss on 6/13/2008 at 9:23:17 PM
When I was a kid back in the early 70's, I had a red white and blue bike called Mr. America, said so right on the chain guard. I believe it may have been a Huffy, but I'm not sure. I have been looking for many years for information, pictures or an actual bike! If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks all!

I have the Miss America girls stingray bike your talking about in your inquiry. It was sold by Coast to Coast stores. The bicycle is complete and rates about 7 out of 10 for condition. Shoot me a price range of what your looking at paying and I'll gladly send some pictures if you want.

Hi,I just bought a 1969 StingRay frame to restore. I got an idea that it would look cool painted like a Black Phantom. I would call it a Phantom StingRay. My question is was there ever a horn tank made to fit a StingRay? If not I will settle for the Phantom colors
