Hahaha! I had a Silver one! With a 3 foot sissy-bar my dad had attached two 12" PVC pipes with hose clamps so I could carry my fishing poles! Ahhh, Memories! <')))>{

I had one identical to that except I believe my seat was an original solid white one, maybe some metallic in it...I loved that bike, washed it polished it, babied it, when I got off I put it on the KICKSTAND, not just throw it on the ground like they do today....It was great until around 73 or so when the 10 speed hit the street and I had to have on of those, still a great memory.

my brother and I both got new Sting Rays when they first came out in 1963 mine was green and his purple, the second week we had them his was stolen from the yard parked next to mine - guess they liked purple more or disliked him. I wish I still had it as the first years are worth $$$. I also had a gold one but it was about a 1970 model. Someday i'd like to get one just to remind me of the good ole days.
