1973 Schwinn Stingray Orange Krate Disc Brake Bicycle:
March 1973 Orange Krate. I received thisbike in July 1973 as a birthday present. Purchased at the Mount Prospect Bike Shop,Mount Prospect,Illinois. (Still there) Itoriginally had lights, two mirriors, a horn, streamers, saddle bag, matching self coiling cable and a 5 ft. fiberglass Flag pole with matching orange Flag.It was a spectacle.All of that stuff is gone now. Took it off as I got older. It rode like aCadillac. It was fun toride down the street and watch and feel the suspension work. A heavy bike but easy to ride. Great wheelie bike.The weight made is easy to control.
I thought I would make it ridable again for my kids butI never finished.I disassembled the bike and started to remove the rear spokes so I could clean up the rim. The rear wheel is missing a couple of spokes. I was going to have the wheels re-spoked as part of the process. Other than a few spokes, it is all there. Every nut and washer is there. (Some are in a baggie with the original chain) Original tires and tubes. They do nothold air for long. The brake cables and shifter cables are not hooked up. Everything worked when Itook it apart a few years ago.
