I have a Schwinn "new world lightweight" early 40's vintage. I am trying to restore and need the font for the downtube decal to get this restoration as close as possible. Hopefully someone out there knows, any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Ray

AGE / VALUE:   Perry coaster brake applications posted by: Stude driver on 2/1/2006 at 1:49:32 AM
I have a box of Perry brake parts that I plan to list on ebay. I've gathered that Hawthorne, JC higgins ,Western flyer,and others used them, but did Schwinn use them also? I just want to be accurate in my listing. Also I plan to sell them as a lot, or should I list them a couple of brake shoes at a time, or drivers by themselves. Some of this is tagged but some are impossible to read. there are about eighteen pounds of innards no housings. Thanks ahead of time for your opinions.

Schwinn never used Perry hubs that I know of. Huffy did though. hope this helps.

My copy of the Schwinn Bicycle Service Manual lists Perry B-500 hubs as being "used on some Schwinn models in the early and mid 1950's".

MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Schwinn Hornet Headset Work posted by: Mike on 1/28/2006 at 10:13:53 PM
Hi, working on an early 60s Schwinn Hornet. The headset is held not by a large nut, but by a metal ring with a rough, gripper-type surface. It won't take a wrench because it's round. Anyone have any experience with freeing such headsets up so they can be adjusted?

I've had good luck using a vice-grip plier. Use some WD-40 or something similar also.

Along with WD-40, you can unscrew that ring with either a pipe wrench or a pair of channel-lock pliers and you're good to go!

FOR SALE:   hubcaps - Chrome reflective Schwinn style posted by: Doug on 1/27/2006 at 8:25:54 AM
I have a set of four hubcaps identical to the ones which recently sold on ebay for $100.
I will let them go to the first $75 offer.
I can send pictures. They are in great shape, never seen the light of day.
I also have a chrome luggage rack, or whatever the heck you call it.

Do you still have the hubcaps?
Also, I just need one, do you have asingle or know of someone who does?
