Finally riding a big boys bike

Does anyone know which Union front hub a 1965 King Size Heavy Duti uses? Mine has pitted cones and I’ve bought several axle kits and hubs to no avail...

Thanks for any help!

If you possess a rare taller (20" seat tube) middleweight cantilever complete or frame and would like to be added to the registry let us know. Only made from 1962-1965 in short production runs, which is already noticeable in the list compiled thus far. A few of us here are obsessed with learning more detailed history on the model, so please add any knowledge to this post as well. I'll do my best to keep the list updated on a regular basis. Looking forward to the knowledge share.

Years and models produced:
King Size American (KSA) 1962-1964 (includes late 61 frame dates for 62 year model)
King Size American Heavy Duty (KSAHD) 1962-1963 (includes late 61 frame dates for 62 year model)
King Size Heavy Duti (KSHD) 1964-1965


Note: I have made the registry spreadsheet an image, so you can save it if you'd like. Enjoy!

Here's my '62 (I think it's a KSA).
Got the frame a couple years ago. Turned it into a BMX cruiser. All kinds of fun stuff on this bike. WNS (Will Never Sell) I'll be buried with this bike.

This frame dropped into my lap a couple years ago. My homie found it on Ebay and scooped it up (had never seen/heard of a King Size). When he saw that it was too big for him, he kicked it to me.
I proceeded to turn it into a BMX cruiser (Santa Barbara style). We modified some Kona forks and made the headset 1/8 threadless. Threw on some new school perfect 10 bars and she's rollin. All kinds of fun &#!^ on this bike.

Thanks. It's super cool to be part of such an elite club. I ride this bike all the time and it rarely gets the respect it deserves. Its the only one I've ever seen. I've even shown it to some serious schwinn dudes and it's the first one that they've seen. I've taken it rides with 100s of other schwinns and its the only Kingsize. The Green Monster is a one of a kind piece of art this bike wasn't built...it was curated.
