Finally riding a big boys bike
Yes, the reason I ask is that I have Coppertone '64 Traveler that I would like to put alloy rims on to improve it's performance while still maintaining a near stock appearance. The '63-'64 Sierras both had 27" wheels, steel for '63, alloy for the '64. The drop center profile of the Weinmann alloy rims on the '64 Sierra sort of mimics the look of the S-5 rim on the Travelers so I'd really like to find that rim in a 26". Don't know if they were ever made though.

I think the 650B is the closest modern type that would swap over. The old Weinmann 2120 model looks just like a Schwinn S-5, but in Alum. I think they are a tiny bit smaller 26". There are several different sizes of 26" rims as far as the ISO number goes. The Schwinn Specific ISO size is 597 if I remember. A 650b's ISO is 584. I think they are a tiny bit smaller than the standard Schwinn 26
