Wore out three sets of tires already!
I'd like to know more about that Komet Super rear hub.
I've got one that came on a 60's Murray Space liner.
It is on Murray rims so I've been thinking it was original to that bike.
I rebuilt it and it works fine but I still don't know much about it.

As far as I know komet made hubs for some murrys mostly mountain bikes and multiple other bikes the hub is a reverse screw type where when peddleing backwards it tightens Wich forces out the pads. They should work fine on your bike as long as it is the same spoke count they are interchangable. It has a different style grease fitting than I have seen on it that you have to use a rubber fitting adapter for but not to bad.

Don't mind the grease on the tire me and my grease gun had a fight .

Also if anyone has a lead on someone selling the correct cargo rack let me know.
This is one nice old Roadmaster... I need to know if you have a rear fender coming? I might have one if you need one. Good looking bike so far. Enjoy and RideOn. Razin.

I had to go with duros 26 1.75 no bike shop in my area has any white walls and they are a few months out for ordering . Eventually I will get American made tires but they do look good .

The G probably stands for Gambles.
A Gambles-sold bike would be badged as a Hiawatha. According to Phil Marshall's list, they started using "G" to mark the year on the bikes in 1957, although the catalog model numbers used a letter for each year from at least 1953. AMF bought CWC in 1951, so I assume 1951 was "A", then 1952 was "B" and so on. Before 1957 the bikes used "55Cw" (1955) and "56Cw" for at least part of 1956, but sometime during the year they started using "F" beside the serial number. After 1957 they went to another system, with the first letter of the serial number giving the year. There's a whole thread on CWC and AMF serials with 60 pages, but @rustjunkie changed the title to give the page with the chart so you don't have to read through the whole thing:
