1970 SCHWINN FASTBACK STINGRAY 3-SPEED STIK SHIFT RED MUSCLE BIKE KRATE VINTAGE! Here is a rare original October 1970 SCHWINN STINGRAY "FASTBACK" 20 BICYCLE! (KF Serial Number) This bike is from the era when most everything was cool! The HEMICUDA, Mach 1 Mustang, and Camaro Z-28 come to mind!
This is one of the coolest bikes made by Schwinn! They look cool and are great riding bikes! The bike is in the original and very appealing KOOL RED factory painted color. (Popular on the regular Stingray+Apple Krate bikes but you rarely see a Fastback in this color) The bike has cool wide apehanger handlebars, matching Schwinn hand grips, chrome fenders front and rear, cool rear sissy bar, Schwinn bow pedals, and so much more! I dont know where you would find another like it!
The bike is an original 3-speed STICK SHIFT with operable hand controlled brakes. Someone wrote over the original 3 with a sharpie Has the cool krate "mag" sprocket in place. The bike shifts and brakes. (may need fine tune adjustment) The seat is cool!
It has the original STINGRAY tag on the rear. Looks good overall but has a couple minor wear spots. This one has Schwinn S5 rims front and rear. The front is a Schwinn 20x1 3/8' The rear is a slightly Fastback SLIK tire! This one has the correct style 3-speed chainguard.
(obviously repainted) I believe this bike to be mostly original parts from when it was new. (See pics and be your own expert). The Fastback Stingray bikes ride better than any Stingray made! They are smooth and look good going down the road! They display nicely as well!Now is your chance to own one of the COOLEST bikes EVER MADE! Make someone in your life happy with this one. This is a cool bike that you can enjoy for years! You RARELY find these bikes anymore!
They were all abused and thrown away back in the 1970s-80s. Finding one these days is a big challenge. They are very cool and people enjoy owning, riding, and displaying them! Most people do not sell these bikes once they have them. Be the first to get this bike back out in the light and have fun with it!I believe this to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is not bad for a 45+ year old boys bike!
I LOVE original paint but has obvious chips scratches etc. The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.
Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to) ENJOY! I took lots of pics and have nothing to hide. Please look closely for exact condition. This is a cool bike in the RIGHT color!The Fastback bikes ride much nicer than the kool KRATE bikes! (they look awesome but these ride much better) I hope you enjoy this! These do not come along often! Sorry for the LONG description, these bikes really excite me. People will ENVY you when you ride by at a car show or on the street with this bike! I try to list anything I notice with the bike. Keep in mind this is a vintage bike that has probably not been ridden for a while so it may need minor tuning, bearings greased, polishing, etc, These bikes are getting harder to find and are more popular than ever before!
You will enjoy owning, riding, and displaying it for years! People always remember these bikes but seldom see them in person. I take them in to have them packaged so they almost always arrive in the same condition as they left us. Fed Ex just increased the rates.This is a 10+ day service and includes packing. I always try to keep things as reasonable as I can. They are all available right now! I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible.
