    Chrome Wheel Cleanup

    I’m always amazed on how well rusty old wheels clean up. This wheel set is from my 67 Sears Spyder. The inside of the rims looks brand new. I have a short video of a side by side of the wheels but can’t load it. Used bronze wool pads and vinegar to get rid of the rust. Sent from my...

    Mongoose Cruiser

    I have a Mongoose Californian which has a cruiser frame. A bit of a surprise since Mongoose is known for BMX bikes. It's made of aluminum and chrome plated. Does any one have information on this bike? I have looked all over the Internet but can't find much. Based on the SN, it appears to...

    64 Sears Fleetwood

    Love chrome bikes. Picked this one up last year from CL for $25. Took it apart and now working on rebuilding it. Put some 1.75 tires on just to ride it around. I ordered some 1 3/8 road tires for it. Cleaned up and shined the fenders and chainguard. Just don't have the time right now...

    S7 Rear Wheel.

    The rear wheel on my bike has an S7 rim with a coaster brake on a (single red line ) hub. Keep in mind, this is not a stingray original frame. It has a 62 Typhoon 20" frame. I've read several post on this forum that say that the S7 rim is a front rim. Just looking for some clarification on...

    Schwinn Headtube Bearing Set

    I'm working on rebuilding a bike I bought for my grandson. I thought it was an original Stingray until I determined the frame serial number is for a 20" 62 Typhoon/American bike that was converted to look like a Stingray. Everything else is original including the rims and tires. My question...

    Is it a Stingray?

    Picked up a, what I thought to be a Schwinn Stingray for $20. I thought it was an early 60's model. After taking apart and looking up the Serial number, I discovered that the bike was manufactured in 1962 (B246768). I am not an expert as this as this is my first muscle bike, but I can read...
