antique bike

Hi, can anybody tell me what kind of bike this is? I was told it was a schwinn stingray. To me it looks like a schwinn hornet or schwinn tornado. All the parts on it are schwinn, but im not sure what brand the frame is.

It isn't a Sting Ray and it isn't even a Schwinn. It doesn't have a Schwinn fork. It has rear facing drop outs that no Sting Ray ever had. The chain ring isn't from a Schwinn and the only part that could be Schwinn might be the Astabula crank. Roger

Looks like a Bendix 2-speed kickback hub on that wheel. Some of the Schwinns had those.
