    Schwinn Racer...Is This Worth Purchasing?

    Wow, I'm out of the loop! I love riding '60s and early '70s Racers and Speedsters, both single-speeds and three-speeds, but I've certainly paid too much for a couple of them after reading this thread. No wonder I got few bites for my '71 at $130!

    Schwinn American - May 2, 1958

    I agree with the above statement. I have a '56 (or maybe '57) Corvette with a manually shifted two-speed and a '67 Typhoon with a kickback, and I much prefer the "manual." I had to replace a couple internal parts, but it works wonderfully.

    Sunday's Show and Tell ...11/12/22

    I accidentally posted this on an old thread earlier in the week, but I picked up a '63 Riviera last weekend (or rather, it was dropped off by a trailer). It's Fawn Mist, an interesting color, and it needs a lot of TLC, but it's one of my favorite cars, and I'm pretty excited.

    What bike did you ride today?

    It was in the 70s in Michigan today, so I took a couple rides on the Raleigh.

    Help! Looking for Schwinn Corvette Parts and info!

    https://waterfordbikes.com/SchwinnCat/flschwinn_1951_1960/1956.html You guys are much more knowledgeable about the details of these things, but my October '56 Corvette has a 2-speed Bendix, and it apparently could have been ordered as an accessory. I don't know if the dealer would have...

    1971 Campus Green Schwinn Racer 3-Speed - $130 OBO

    I think I'll bump this one more time and give up for a while. I'm having no luck selling this thing here or locally, and I don't really want to let it go for less.

    1971 Campus Green Schwinn Racer 3-Speed - $130 OBO

    Thanks to you both...I figured I'd have an easier time selling it (even locally - it's on Marketplace and Craigslist). It's not a hurry...just making room for more bikes. :)

    1971 Campus Green Schwinn Racer 3-Speed - $130 OBO

    I'm looking to sell my '71 Racer; I have a '69 in Campus Green with a taller frame that fits me better. This is a nice (not perfect) original bike with a Sturmey-Archer. When I bought it about 10 years ago, I greased everything (not the hub - Sturmeys seem to last forever) and installed new...

    Bendix manual 2 speed hub

    I just had one of these apart and had to replace the drive screw and sun gear. If you have any questions, let me know and maybe I can help.

    Just acquired this 1973 Schwinn Speedster 3 Speed...

    Nice bike! I have a yellow '73 with a tall frame, too, but mine's just got the coaster brake hub.

    New to me Corvette

    I totally disassembled the Corvette for cleaning and greasing, and I took it out for a good 12-mile ride today, and it's working great. The only mechanical problem was a roached drive screw in the hub (and an incorrect bearing that seemed to keep it from shifting initially). High gear on these...

    Sunday's Show and Tell ...6/12/22

    I feel like I'm oversharing (it's on the Schwinn subforum AND the Craigslist subforum), but this is my new-to-me '57 Corvette. I can't wait to blow it apart and get everything cleaned up and working as it should. It has a Bendix two-speed (non-kickback).

    New to me Corvette

    Thanks for posting it! I'm pretty excited about it; I've never owned a Corvette. I have a Corvair, but it's not quite the same. :)

    New to me Corvette

    Someone posted this bike from the Detroit area Craigslist here on the CABE about a week ago, and I went to pick it up today. It looks pretty good - I think it will clean up well. It has a manual Bendix 2-speed that will need some work; one of the gears is freewheeling/trying to find a gear...
