I’m looking for ideas for wheels, tires and training wheels for a Schwinn Lil Tiger. The bike is violet and is going to have a black Persons seat. The bike is missing it’s original seat, rims, tires and training wheels. I’m having a tough time finding original style training wheels that don’t cost more than the whole bike so I’d like to look into some others. Looking to put newer style tires with a coaster brake on it. I’d like the tires to have a muscle bike look if possible.

I’d love to see your set up so post pics if you have them! I’ll post some of my bike so far.

Here is the bike so far. I cleaned up and regreased the bearings tonight and also put the seat on. I need to straighten up the seat but I just wanted to mount it real quick to see how it looked.

You can find 12" chrome coaster wheels on newer import bikes pretty easy at thrift shops on the cheap. Polish up the chrome and run the 12" Duro White walls. ( avail on eBay) also , the wald silver training wheels look good and fit well.

Here are the Wald trainers. They adjust on the frame.

The white ones are Schwinn. They adjust on wheel not frame.

here is an old thread with some good info. Good luck with the resto !
I appreciate the response! That’s what I was looking for to see some set ups, how they looked, what parts used, etc. I’ll probably end up going with the Walds if I can’t get any originals for a somewhat reasonable price. I haven’t been able to find any chrome wheels second hand unfortunately. I did find a new set of front and rear rims for about 40 dollars total which was way less than I could find them new anywhere else.

Went through two sets of tires bc the first set would not fit the rims but finally got the second set on. Just need to add a chain and those training wheels.
