    1970 Schwinn Apple coaster Krate build

    I dont know on the chain yet, I will have to wait until the rear tire is mounted. As for the tire, were these bikes gripper or slik from the factory? The images i've seen show the white lettered slik.

    1970 Schwinn Apple coaster Krate build

    So I have found the Red Band Bendix should be here next week, the rim is here now. It's in good shape from what I can tell, its stamped 72. I've never laced a wheel, does anyone know what the correct nipples and spokes are for this wheel? So now I'm down to the a few things. 69-73 Front Fender...

    Laced My First Wheel!

    Ive looked at videos, but they seems to be for 36 spoke wheels, the Krate is a 28 spoke wheel, I havent found anything that's specific to a 28 spoke yet. I think if I had something that was already assembled and I could photograph before doing it I might be a bit more confident about it, but...

    Laced My First Wheel!

    how difficult is this to do? I'm building a 70 coaster Krate, and sourced a S2 rim, and a Red Band Bendix for the rear. I've never built a wheel before.

    August 63 Schwinn stingray just finished !

    wow, eventually I will find a survivor with nice enough paint to warrant redoing all of the chrome. That is one outstanding bike.

    1969 Stingray Campus Green

    that's not out of the norm, automakers have re-released colors that have not matched, or switched them mid production with no warning. It's just something that will go down in the specifications book as campus green pre-whatever year it changed. Even variations by plant for automakers are...

    Rim Strip help

    yeah, I've used electrical tape in the past on stuff. I was just looking for information about the tape and strips in particular. I ended up going to get some strips from a bike shop. Although I would still like to know more about the actual rim tape.

    What width would I use for these wheels if I were to use the tape?

    Rim Strip help

    I am working on my 1966 Huffy Dragster. The rim strips on the original wheels are disentegrating and I need to replace them. Where can I find them? The front is a 20 x 2.175 and the rear is a 20x2.125. They look like some sort of rubber but its rock hard and crumbled.

    1970 Schwinn Apple coaster Krate build

    I know the front uses an S7, but had never heard that the rear used that as well. So I did some digging and all I could find was that the krates and stingrays used S2 in the rear and S7 up front unless the bike was a Junior model, then there would be a S7 in the rear as well. Hopefully that's...

    1970 Schwinn Apple coaster Krate build

    I haven't read anything about S7 being used in the rears post 68, just S2's. Where did you see this info at? I can't find anything on it.
