Posted by: jason TITLE: MIDDLEWEIGHT: 1958 Starlet Rear rack
Hi, does anyone know what kind of rear rack the 1958 starlet came with? I cannot find a good image online of this rack and I need to buy one. Obviously, I want to buy the correct rack, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone have one for sale? Is this rack supposed to be a 9hole?
Additionally, Does anyone know if Schwinn made a late 50~s bike basket? My bike has a basket on it and it seems to be manufactured to fit the front truss rods perfectly. Was this an aftermarket basket back in the day?
your help is greatly appreciated, thanks, J (from Southern CA) firstname.lastname@example.org

9-hole is correct. I~ll see if I can email you a picture of a 56 (been having trouble with attachments).
I~ll be interested to hear about baskets. My guess is that Wald would have made a Schwinn-approved model for dealer installation- does yours have any markings at all?
