Posted by: eric TITLE: AGE / VALUE:   skip tooth
I have a schwinn from the early fifties with a skip tooth. About what year did they stop using that type of chain/ And why did they keep using it after the standard style, that we use now came about?

I have a 1953 Hawthorne with skiptooth, so I know they used it at least until then. Some manufactures never used skiptooth, but had 1/2 pitch from the begining. I have seen bikes from the 1920~s and 30~s with 1/2 pitch. As to why they stopped skiptooth - I haven~t a clue.
