    1969 Schwinn Typhoon - what model Bendix rear hub?

    I'm guessing that even though my frame is stamped 1969, the bike won't be accurate to that date. The chainring is not a Mag Wheel chainring, it's an earlier clover leaf design And the internals that I have for the coaster brake is for an RB. So, it looks like I need a pre-69 hub as well...

    1969 Schwinn Typhoon - what model Bendix rear hub?

    Sounds exactly like what I'm experiencing. Bearings that fit on the axle are too big for the race in the hub. I found my printout for Bendix Coaster Brake interchangeability and it pretty much confirms what you're saying that RB and RB-2 share the same shell and other parts except for...

    1969 Schwinn Typhoon - what model Bendix rear hub?

    @coasterbrakejunkie1969 I have a knurled shell, and an axle with no bearings. I don’t know if they came on the same bike or not. The internal parts seem too long for the Hub. I don’t think that bearings would make up the spacing. The sad thing is: I just gave away a complete 63 Fiesta. Sat...

    1969 Schwinn Typhoon - what model Bendix rear hub?

    As the title says, in 1969, what model Bendix coaster brake would have come on a Schwinn Typhoon? I went to a swap meet on Saturday and picked up a 1969 Typhoon (Campus green) frame and fork For $20. Traded the guy next to me a blue chain guard for a matching green one. From my own stash, I...

    Advice for removing sprocket from New Departure hub

    Boy did I try to make that more difficult than necessary. I was about to make the removal tool and a chain whip, but lying in bed last night I had a thought. This morning I put it into action. i just swapped the entire drive mechanisms, sprocket, bearing, driver, et al with the hub that I was...

    Turquoise paint on chrome Flightliner

    @marching_out With little difference in color, Duplicolor is more in tune to my Wallet. Thank you, I’ll pick some up tomorrow or have my buddy at Advance Auto order me a couple of cans. Did you lay down a silver base before applying the color? Ed

    1958 Schwinn Starlet

    Finally getting around to painting a bunch of mismatched parts, and missing parts that I've finally gathered for this 1958 Starlet. Working on some stencils for the tank and chain guard

    Turquoise paint on chrome Flightliner

    Has anyone been able to come up with a matching turquoise paint for the tank, fork ends, and rear rack on an early 60s JC Higgins girl's Flightliner with the chrome frame?
