    Schwinn Speedster what year?

    I just picked up this Speedster, but can't find a serial number on the head tube or the left rear drop out. Is there any other place it could be? It's blue, has a camelback frame ans 26" S5 wheel. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Schwinn 24" Camelback frame and fork

    Does anyone have a 24" camelback frame and fork? I have some stuff I could trade, or could buy outright. Campus Green or Sky Blue would be my first choices for color, but any would be considered. Thanks.

    Jokers Wild

    This is a China made Schwinn Stingray knock off that I picked up in April last year from a scrap metal place. The springer forks were broken and the overall condition poor, but the frame was straight and useable, so I drug it home and throw it in the stash for a future project. I am currently...

    67 Schwinn Fastback

    I just picked up a Fastback a few days ago. Serial #ECxxxxx, so if my information is correct that makes it a May 1967 build. A few things that puzzle me about this bike is that it is painted Campus Green which isn't listed in the Schwinn catalogs until 1968. Another thing I find curious is that...

    Schwinn Midget

    I only just found out that Schwinn made a 16" Midget Stingray! I'd like to build one up for my grandson when he comes to visit. Anyone here have one they'd part with?

    Schwinn kick stand

    I need a kickstand for a 24 inch Schwinn canti frame for my King Ray build. I was going to shorten one from a 26" frame but it doesm't seem to fit in through the mounting hole correctly. Also, if anyone has a green occ stingray chain guard I may be interested in that too. Thanks, Alan.

    Ugly Schwinn frame

    Yesterday I bought some old junk bikes, and in the pile was this ugly 26" Schwinn canti frame. The serial numbers start with "AJ" which translates into Jan. ' 73. It appears to have originally been yellow as I found some of the original markings on the yellow paint. These brown forks obviously...

    RRBBO13 King Ray

    I'm sure this has been done before, so nothing too exciting here. I wanted to build an over sized Sting Ray by combining the handle bars and banana seat with a 24 inch frame. I know that Schwinn made a Manta Ray but it had a light weight frame with 1 3/8 inch tires. I wanted the heavier frame...

    Just picked up this Fastback!

    I just bought this Schwinn Fastback. The bike is very rough and before I spend any money making it ridable again I want to check to see how original it is. The frame is dated Nov 1966 (LM55664) what other parts should have date codes I can check? Any help would be greatly appreaciated!

    No name (yet) rat

    Maybe I need a cool name before I start cutting.....idk! But this is the starting point for my second build. I plan to cut the cantilever bars and cold form the chain stays like I read on someone elses post here. Then weld on a new point to locate the rear axle. More to come....

    Howdy from middle Tenneessee

    Hi. My name is Alan and I'm from Murfreesboro Tn. I have built my first bike ( with some help from a friend of mine!) Which is an OCC Stingray that we widened the rear section (chain stays) to accept a 6 spd cassette, then he welded up two ape hanger handle bars to fit the stock handlebar...
