If you are still looking, I may have one. I've got a coppertone Breeze and a blue collegiate I stripped for parts this summer and pretty sure I still have the original cable and housing for it. I can look in the parts shed tomorrow afternoon and let you know for sure. it came off of this bike or a blue collegiate in the shed.I'm working on a 1967 Schwinn Coppertone Deluxe Collegiate and can't seem to find any shifter cable housing to replace the rusty original. Does anyone know of a solution? Thanks in advance.
Thanks Crash for the info.I restore a lot of bikes, so I buy in bulk off Ebay. I used 5mm housing for both brakes and shift cables. I use white because that's what non-Schwinn bikes used, but you can find it in all kinds of colors, including gray. Just search for 5mm bicycle brake cable housing.
Some bikes did use a 4mm housing. If you think that's what you need, you can certainly search for 4mm and find what you need. You can also search for the corresponding (5 or 4mm) housing ferrules. I gently use a cable cutter around the whole diameter to crimp them on.
My local shop only carries the brake cable housing. They have that in a bulk roll but not the older Schwinn style shifter housing. I took the advice CRASH gave me and ordered some 4mm housing off the web. Hopefully that will work. ThanksI would think if you went to local bike shop and see what they have, they also carry it in bulk, if you just need a piece..........Curt
