You need the square back sissy bar. The 63 was the non crimped ones. Then in 64 they used the crimped style. They are crimped where the seat bolts go. Here is a pic of a non crimped one you are looking for.

Schwinn used at least 3 different tire's in 63. This was the first year, or actually half year. Most likely, tire would be dated 1962 or 63. I do not believe Schwinn used ANY slick tire's in 1963. It was most likely a 20X2.125 tire with knobby tread, diamond pattern tread was definetely one of the 63.5 tread pattern's schwinn used. Good Luck! WOW! What a find!.Congrats!
