Posted by: Aaron TITLE: MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Typhoon Hub, etc.
Hello,
I just picked up a Schwinn Typhoon, and judging by the numbers, it~s from May ~70. It seems to "slip out of gear" occasionally...is there a good way to clean the hub? I don~t want to disassemble something that~s a complete nightmare to get back together...I~m also looking for the rear fender braces, or a new fender altogether...are these often on ebay or anything? Thanks for any help!

the Schwinn kickstand works better when it~s cleaned and lubed-

and sometimes the retaining pin gets worn enough that the spring doesn~t hold the stand tight in the detents.
in my experience however, some of them just line up a little low.

OK, I disassembled and cleaned the hub and it works nice now...plus, I just took the fenders off for now. The kickstand hangs a little low when it~s up--any ways to tighten it up in there?
