I think I finally figured out that a 24 inch 1950's Schwinn American has the balloon fender with indents for the frame.
I know other models have them, but I haven't seen anybody selling them with the indents... lately
@ Wards Guy
Does the rear fender have the little indents where the frame mount is ?
Would you mind measuring the distance between the lower frame mount hole and the upper frame mount hole ? I think it's 13 inches on my frame..
BTW, thanks for posting..
I just saw this guy at LBC swapmeet, funny thing is he said he's looking for a black Manta Ray seat.
I'm also currently working on a 24" inch Typhoon / Stingray build, although it looks like I might be reconsidering going with black ;)
I'm planning on lacing up some rims soon and I was wondering if 12 gage spokes would be too bulky looking for an S-7 with a Westwind tire.
(This isn't my bike, but I know that these are S-7's with Westwind tires) Do these look like 12 gage spokes ?
I'm doing a 1964 Schwinn Typhoon - black. I don't think it matters if it has the original red primer etc, because it's a custom build (it would be nice but not mandatory)..
I just want someone experienced because I have an eye for detail and I don't to see obvious flaws, like someone did a quicky.
