Please let me know if the bike is still available.

BALLOON:   Rear hub free spinning posted by: frank on 5/27/2006 at 10:17:44 PM
I put my new departure d rear hub back together with an old bendix axle that had the same thread as the original.I dont know if it came out of the garbage like this or I put it together wrong but the rear wheel rarely engages. The peddles grab the chain occasonally and the brake sometimes works, otherwise the peddles spin freely and do nothing.Am I missing a spring or something.Help Please

AGE / VALUE:   Help ID this bike! posted by: Nate on 5/26/2006 at 2:31:16 AM
I just obtained a womens 24" cruiser that I am in the process of restoring. Its most identifying features are the triple-plated fork crown, the twin top tube, which is of course curved down towards the crank, and on the chainguard i could faintly make out the word "DELUXE" but whatever was in front of it I couldnt see....The bikes original color was a beautiful teal green color, but had been painted red and then blue over the years. I dont have a picture right now of the frame but i will post one soon if no one knows what this might be. thanks for your help!

BALLOON:   Seatpost Diameter help? posted by: Scott on 5/24/2006 at 2:05:54 PM
I have what I believe to be a 1972 Schwinn Typhoon frame that needs a seatpost. From eyeballing it, it looks a bit smaller than a 1 inch internal diameter seattube. Does anyone know for sure the size post I need or a site where I can find the correct size. I hate to buy something online based on a guestimate that it takes 7/8" post. Below is the serial number stamped on the rear wheel drop out. Thanks for any help or recommendations.

Correction - Frame production date was January 1966. Still wondering what the seatpost size is. Thanks.

Your Typhoon is actually 40 this month; the 'E' stands for May!

We have one born the same month (EB47472), I was just getting ready to refurbish. Actually I'm really a bit miffed, right now: in the two weeks since this bike showed up, someone has pilfered the seat (an original two-tone with the 'S') and replaced it with a torn banana from an old Stingray, so it momentarilly has high-rise bars to match ;) I'll see if I can borrow a caliper from my LBS...
