    fender braces

    Very easy. Bead blast off all the rust then spray with clear satin. They will stay nice for many years. And don’t touch them with bare hands after blasting or you’ll get rusty finger prints.

    Old Bike Haul/Hoping for some Information

    I’m thinking the rear fender on the Schwinn is not Schwinn. Fender brace attaches to axle. Should attach to ear.

    Show me your cool little details! ~:The Little Things:~

    When I built this bike I got ready to put the rack on and discovered I didn't have any of those clamps that go around the frame. I came up with something else. I used a small "L" shaped bracket and attached it to the bolt that holds the fender, placing it on upside down. I bolted the bracket...

    SOLD REPOP SCHWINN PHANTOM PARTS FOR SALE

    I took my '95 Schwinn pedals apart, then painted the reflectors with black Krylon. Reassembled them with painted reflectors facing inward. Fixed! Pre-reflector pedals. Gary

    WTB: Bendix kickback axle (2 speed)

    Blue and yellow have threads from one end to the other. The red has two sets of threads that don't connect. If your red has continuous threads, it's been replaced at some point with a yellow or blue axle. Gary

    WTB: Bendix kickback axle (2 speed)

    I'll have to go down in the shop and look again, but IIRC the red band is not threaded continuous. Two sets of threads with unthreaded area in the middle. Yellow and blue are threaded all the way. A yellow or blue band axle will work on a red band but a red band axle won't work on blue or...

    WTB: Bendix kickback axle (2 speed)

    Blue and yellow, same axle. Red band axle is different. I think I have a few red band axles. Gary

    Question about Bendix blue band hubs.

    The chart that says they won't interchange says so for cosmetic reasons, not mechanical. They didn't want the blue and yellow shells to get mixed up, but the dimensions are the same. So now that you have a green band, (blue X yellow make green) tell us how it rides. Gary

    Question about Bendix blue band hubs.

    Yes, blue band guts in a yellow band hub shell will work. Won't work in a red band. Gary

    Comfortable (even custom?) banana seat?

    Here's my attempt at comfort. I started with a cheap seat. I think it's the square sidewall kind like Rauol Dude showed. I glued a layer of closed cell foam first. Then I added a layer of this grey colored composite looking material that looked like an old horse blanket. Like padding you'd...
