Rare Vintage 1968 Schwinn Sting-Ray Fastback Bicycle Muscle Shifter Bike Black. This is an original Schwinn String-Ray Fastback with a serial number dating it to November 1968 Chicago. This is a one owner bike that has not been used in almost 50 years where it has been stored in a climate controlled and dry environment. It has only been lightly wiped with fresh water and the chain lightly lubricated with teflon Rem-oil. The bicycle has not been buffed or polished and is as found.This really great bicycle is in great overall condition for its age, there are no cracks and it is rideable. The fittings, mechanisms and bearings all are in good shape. The frame has some small areas of paint wear and discoloration of the graphics and there is mild, and for the most part, superficial corrosion on the chrome parts but it has not been polished. The 20 Schwinn Fastback Slick model rear tire and Schwinn Fastback front tire can be filled with air but go flat, the rubber tires seem to be in good shape but I have not examined the inner tubes which will probably need replacement. The chain is good and the shifter, Schwinn Approved. And brakes work (brake pads, cables and rubber pedals have wear but look good, some wear to the graphics on the shifter). Schwinn MAG crank has some corrosion spots. The handlebars have some surface rust spots and the hand grips are very good and not cracked or scuffed. The seat has an area of staining toward the rear as shown in the pictures and a few small splits underneath. The large GULCO reflector behind the seat is not cracked or chipped. Is found on the rear wheel frame.
This would be an excellent bike to keep in it's. Original condition or would be an excellent candidate for restoration. The item "Rare Vintage 1968 Schwinn Sting-Ray Fastback Bicycle Muscle Shifter Bike Black" is in sale since Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
