    Here is a '64 model that I picked up a couple years ago(seller's photo).
    I've since replaced the chain guard with on one that has the name screening on it. Also put new tires on it.
    I had a 24" wheel one as a kid. Near as I can figure it must have been a '62 model though I don't have any good photos of it to verify that.
    I'd like to find a 26" wheel black '62 model like the one Schwinnman67 posted above.

    Hey Dave, What’s up with the front and rear racks .. Do they belong on a Typhoon?

    I added the racks when I put this back together again. The rear is a plain non-reflector style (decided that since it is a base model bike, it didn't need a reflector style rack) and the front is a Wald. I also added a speedometer.

    My first bicycle was a '64 or '65 Black Schwinn Typhoon.
    I am loving this.
    Thank you for posting.

    My 1964 Schwinn Typhoon that I rescued from a scrapyard. I ride it whenever I need to pay my monthly rent at the campground office, take the trash to the dumpster, or get the mail (also at the office). It's a good ride - about 3/4 mile one way. Most the times I'll ride it over to over to some of the neighbors - even if it's just walking distance! :laughing:

    Here's my 62 custom twin straight bars with a 2-speed kickback, balloon tire, finished in candy purple. Looking to add some crate Style fenders eventually, this is one of my favorite rides,

    1964 Typhoon completely restored for the guy that bought it brand new when he was young. Has 2 speed kicker and has a temporary seat on it while I restore the original. The fork darts and fenders are hand striped by yours truly.
