    Wanted: "Schwinn Approved" (lightweight? Varsity?) saddle

    Are those seriously hard to find? It seems like they were everywhere back in the day. Maybe I should just get a B17....

    Need fenders and chain?

    More pictures! I've seen this picture in several threads now, and it is impossible to tell what you might need for a chain. It doesn't show any of the details you would need to see to guess. I see that it has a rear caliper brake. Why? There is no derailleur visible. Is there a 3 speed hub? I...

    Wanted: "Schwinn Approved" (lightweight? Varsity?) saddle

    Looking for a saddle.... The one I am looking for is black vinyl and has a stamp (Schwinn Approved) on the side, almost as though it is pretending to be a real leather saddle, such as the Schwinn leather saddle used on early 60s Varsities, or a Brooks or Ideale. There may or may not be holes...

    Another serial # dilemma

    Isn't that the 36-39 chainwheel? Look at how skinny it is around the drive holes.

    s7 oversize tires

    Yes mrg. Best price by far but you have to buy 3 sets if you can't pick them up locally to him. There are at least 3 sellers on Ebay also. These are all small brick tread pattern. The 2" oversize exists in some other (Cheng Shin maybe?) tire with a different tread pattern, and you can find them...

    1961 schwinn american value

    Aren't those the wide middleweight fenders on the bike in the OP? Should be narrow for 1962 middleweight with painted fenders I think, or at least that is the conclusion that was reached in some other thread.

    Torrington’s vs Persons Pedals, does it matter?

    Did Persons make rebuildable-bearing pedals? If so, which ones?

    What size and thread are Torrington pedal block nuts?

    Well I already tried a Schwinn chain tensioner and it doesn't screw in. That is another screwball thread I would like to know the identity of. It would have come in handy a couple of days ago when I was repairing one of those screws.

    What size and thread are Torrington pedal block nuts?

    Yes those are the ones and thanks for checking. I struck out at the local hardware, and they have the same size board. I have one cage here I would really like to save, but thanks to another caber I do have a plan B if it isn't possible to save it. I have a sneaking hunch it is going to be a...

    Straightening forgings... Who has done it?

    Thanks all. I guess it will be a big iron pipe with some copper for padding.

    What size and thread are Torrington pedal block nuts?

    Welp... the die is here. It's not 12-24.
