FOR SALE:   Entire Bike or Parting out 1953 Schwinn Starlet posted by: BikesAlot on 10/26/2002 at 2:42:45 PM
Hello,
I'm selling the whole bike on ebay.Item#726255781. I have pictures posted on the auction. If this bike doesn't meet the reserve, I am going to part out the bike. I don't like doing that, but I'm sure the parts would be very useful to another restoration. Everything is usable. The fork truss is there. The horn tank, fenders and chainguard are all in nice shape. The front fender is missing its light. The white springer seat is nice too for its age. The rims are 26 X 2.125 S-2's. They are Schwinn so I'm sure they would cleanup nice. Someone installed new reproduction whitewalls.

WANTED:   As much info as possible on early disc brakes! posted by: Trevor Martin on 10/24/2002 at 2:50:54 AM
I have acguired a JC PEnnny 12 speed with a shimano disc brake in the rear. I was under the impression that these shimano disc brakes were only sutible for the juvinile market and lacked the appropriate stopping power for adult bikes. Is this accurate? cause this bike stops quite well. Were there other models of Schwinn disc brakes? I want to learn as much as possible about disc brakes at that time. Anyone help me out? Would it be wise to switch the brake over to my Schwinn Varsity? What about fron disc brakes? INform ME! Please!


Trevor Martin
