I just finished my latest restoration (October 2010). It’s a 26″ 1974 Schwinn Typhoon. This beauty features the triple-red band Two-Speed Automatic Kickback Hub, 26″ 1 3/4″ Schwinn ‘Westwind’ brick-tread tires and coaster brake. As with all of my rebuilds, the bike was stripped to the bare metal, primed, painted and clear-coated – then reassembled using about 85% of the original parts. I’m really happy with the way this 36-year-old classic turned out. Now, the only real question is: “Do I sell it, or keep it?” 🙂
