+10 Why do you think it is a Schwinn? Schwinn did not make a Sting Ray back then, and I have not seen a Schwinn with a stamped metal kickstand, but I am not a Schwinn expert for sure. Crank and fork do not look like Schwinn to me either, again, I am not that knowledgable on Sting Rays.

Sting Ray first showed up in catalogs in 1964, first showed up on price sheets in 1963. As far as it having Schwinn parts, I grew up back then. Everyone was converting their cruiser style bikes to Sting Rays. I converted my non-descript cruiser about 1965.
