This is my new bike, picked it up today!
im digging it!
cool deal.. 3 speed bendix hub??
yes it is a 3 speed but i don't know what a bendix hub is :S im still a noob, Could someone possibly enlighten me?
man where you getting all these bikes? the hunting grounds must be fresh in you area.... truthfully i would say look at the break arm but i'm pretty new at this too so look for an inscription on the hub shell it's possible i could be asturmey archer does the generator work??
the guy also gave me a free fender lol
are those fenders aluminum?
Stainless steel i believe
those internal hubs are cool around hear you just don't see them anymore i have a shamino 3 speed that i laced to a 26 2.125 rim for my rat ride and i am currently having a bendix yellow band 2 speed laced to the same size rim for my 1954-56 schwinn straight bar. i believe the hub came off a tandem so i am putting a thicker grade spoke on it something like 1.05 my local bicycle shop repair man said it would be close to the size of motor cycle spokes. how true that will be is yet to be seen. i like the internal gears i just don't like all the wires i like my bicycles to look regular with that hidden aspect and i think thats very cool
i forgot to add that the hub i'm having laced is a kickback
only if i knew what all that ment :\
Cool! Yours looks to be in better shape than mine was when I got it! Of course, I only paid $2.50 for mine, in 1980!
Dang $2.50!!! That is a heck of a buy.
I dont know how I'm going to re-do the cables & brakes. :S
You can use new replacement cables from your LBS aka local bike store. I think the og outer casings were gray.
I see... thank you for that!
