« on: July 12, 2011, 10:07:34 PM »

         Hello

It is not perfect but very nice. The model number is L493575, any help would be appreciated, year made, aprox. value etc.

                            Thanks

welcome mark.not a big stingray guy,but can help a little.pics always help out too.
where is the serial number located?if it's on the left rear dropout,the bike looks to be a nov. 12,1964.a fairly collectible stingray ;)probably sold as a 65 deluxe.color is most likely coppertone.one of my favorite colors.

I agree with Island Schwinn, a very collectable little schwinn which makes the Nov 64 super deluxe worth a few bucks. Without pictures its hard to value a bike but that bike in average condition should be worth around 500.00 or more but value all depends on condition ( Especially paint condition ) and if it has all of its original parts. Can you post pictures? Welcome to the forum,  :) Jeff

Welcome to the forum Mark!

Looking forward to the photos.  Sounds similar to my childhood bike.

Welcome Mark. Looking forward to some pics. I just picked up a 66 Coppertone Super D with original paint. They are beautiful bikes. Original 64 Rays are getting hard to find.

Mark;
   That bike would be a short frame '65 Super Deluxe.  Your frame was built at the very end of '64 as a '65 bicycle. The Super Deluxe was made in '65 and '66 only. The short frame was phased out in March (some say later, some say earlier) for the longer frame which is slightly longer and a bit easier to ride for an adult.  As a short frame variant your bike is very collectable as it is a Stingray model that was made in very limited quantities for only a short period of time. The short frame Stingray later became the Stingray Jr.
    I own a Lime Green '65 Super Deluxe made in Feb. 1965.  All of the Super Deluxes were made with the chrome chain guard, tuck and roll seat, bow pedals and of course the springer front end.  They were available with either a single speed Bendix rear hub or the Blue Band kick-back Bendix hub.  You could order the white wall rear slick or the white wall tractor treads.  In my opinion the Super Deluxe was one of the nicest Stingrays ever built and I prefer them over any of the Krates.  Hope you post some pics and welcome to the best Schwinn Forum on the web.

Have Fun;
Ventana

            Ventana and all others

                                             Thanks for the info, I will try to get some pics this week, I have been busy. It is a nice original bike, the only thing I see missing is the rear reflector under the seat. The bike has rust, paint is faded but all original. I collect Military colletibles and really enjoy the untouched original pieces, is this the same with bikes? I see so many that have been redone, is there a market for untouched, not perfect examples that a colletor would desire?
