Want to re-rivet the brace back on my Schwinn fenders, but don't know what tool I need for the tubular rivets.

Can anyone help with this?

You can get them at most hardware stores.
What hardware store is that? I see the pop river tools but haven’t seen a tubular rivet tool at Ace, Home Depot, or Lowes. Couldn’t find one at Harbor Freight either? V/r Shawn

Thanks for the link, but trying I don't want to use a hammer to set rivets. Looking to get a rivet press tool. Heard of the c clamp style and the squeeze type. Which is better? What size rivets do I need?

I don't know. Talk to Hanson Rivet? Thats probably you best source for accurate information. I've only ever worked with rivets a few times on bicycles. I copied Momo68's technique and it work perfectly for me with excellent results. One bike I chucked rivets in my drill and re shaped them with a file a bit to match the profile of original rivets I removed (fenders needed to be rolled). A little rust to match the patina of all the other fasteners and you'd never know they were replaced.

An alternative is the bolt that looks like a rivet. Available at Bicycle Heaven and Ebay (titled "Vintage Schwinn Bicycle Fender Brace Rivet Screws Nuts Bolts Phantom Bike Krate"). I've used these and they work well.

Scott, the Cabe owner sells these screw rivets. I like them because you can go back and redo work on your fenders if needed without drilling out the old rivets.

You can find these in large quantities online. Look for Altha Fasteners.
