Look here...http://oldroads.com/. You're going to have to dig. Doubt there isn't much of anything on that bike anywhere. Don't really understand what you are looking for anyway. Sounds like you know about as much as there is to know already. YOU might be THE expert as we speak! :P

I can't believe that is NOT a Schwinn Stingray? Looks exactly like one.
