Hello,

I am new here- glad to find CABE. I am restoring a '52 Schwinn Tandem that I have had for twenty years. I am looking for advice on getting the heavy duty wheels re-chromed or going with new. This thing is so heavy that I am also considering a custom build rear wheel with a multi-geared hub and HD spokes.

I will have the frame stripped and powered coated back to the ubiquitous Schwinn blue, re-chrome the Cranks, Headset and other tandem hardware. Finish up with new chrome fenders and handlebars.

I will post pics soon.

Any thoughts, suggestions??

Thanks,
Andrew (ZCurves)

Nice! Mine has the chain guard on the opposite side and it is a single speed. I like the Hub Brakes on yours - something I am considering. I also found a white OEM decal set.
