    What were the Schwinn S-5 rims used on? What eras or dates were these used? What size tires were they used with? Someone gave me one with a Bendix R.B. hub. I'd like to use it for something sometime, but would like to know what it was originally used on and when. TIA everyone!!!

    Thanks so much. You are correct, I now remember removing the original s-5 wheels (with 2-sp. auto bendix red band) from the '63 Speedster when motorizing it. Replaced with generic huffy 26 X 1 3/8 hoops laced to a vintage 1950's (pre r.b.) bendix. Thanks for the info!!!

    Many people will pay " much dinero " for that " red band !"
