I have a set of forebrakes (front and rear) that I removed from a 50s Schwinn tandem. I'm wanting to put them on my 95 anniversary Black Phantom. They are not marked Schwinn. They are not high flange. What length spokes do I need? Will the Schwinn scripted pork chops on ebay fit these brakes? Thanks for any information guys.

My understanding is they are wider than regular hubs.Also I wouldn't be surprised if the diameters of spokes were larger than regular gauge My experience comes from buying script hub that in ebay add looked normal but upon receipt was clearly larger.

The Town & Country tandems used Schwinn expander brakes for the most part of the 50's. They also used Union pieces later so I have to doubt the parts are interchangeable.

I believe these are Unions. Still no clue on spoke lengths I would need to mount them on S2 wheels? Although it's been a few years, I think the spoke sizes were small. That's what the holes look like in the hub as well.
