Hello everyone & thanks for having me. What a weekend! I came home from an estate sale with two beauties I’ve never seen before. I’m a vintage motorcycle guy, with a few bicycles in my collection, but nothing this cool.
I apologize if I sound like a moron on this subject, thats why I’m here. School me, masters!
I purchased a wooden-rimmed Miami & a later Hercules bike. Plans are to ready the Hercules as my swapmeet transportation. I’ve added a Stewart Warner speedo from my “stash”. Just need tubes/tires and it’s ready.
Wheels were already nice & true with nice spoke tension. My question, for now, is will 2.175/2.125 tires fit the rims? I’m aware of the s2/s7 difference on Schwinn wheels, but don't know if it’s an issue on a Hercules. The Miami, I’m not touching it. Much to learn. Thanks in advance
ps: can’t seem to post pictures from this iPad. Full storage, something else to fix. (Today)
