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,
