Far from rideable until I get a front rim. 

Embarrassed to say I totally disassembled the front rim axle to clean and repack the bearings plus descale the rust and crud. Went to install the new to me (used) Schwinn S-7 tire and tube and could not get the bead to seat. Then I learned about the proprietary tire size of the S-7 series...thats about 3hrs I'll never get back. Hub says JOU YU 3 64, Rim is stamped CMC RIM







I also need another set of pedals to swap out the pair that were changed at some point. I'll then pull the entire pedal crank assemblies to clean and repack those bearings. I'm hoping to find cheap Typhoon or Hollywood in my area for parts. Too many skinny tire Breeze's, Collegiate's and over priced Aunt Betty's bikes recently acquired.

A hard lesson for most new to Schwinns..... and don't confuse them with the 'new' Schwinns at WallyWorld and other places.
 
The knurling on the rims is the identifier.

Looks like we might have to start thinking about a Fall Midwest Schwinn Twinn Reunion! LOL
 
    (be a little less hassle trailering)
