    Need help with an old Schwinn World sport

    Hi there my Uncle recently acquired an old Schwinn World Sport bike from the 80's (we think). It is in need of a new wheel set, he will only be using the bike for rides around the neighborhood and where he works to ride from building to building. I believe the wheels are 27 1-1/4 wheels I am not sure, very unfamiliar with the bike. So where could I find a cheap set of wheels for the bike to get him up and running with it? Any help would be great...thanks

    I converted an old 70s bike to SS, a new rear wheel cost me $80. So unless you want to put in a hundred or so dollars, snagging some off another bike might be your best bet. Check CL for used parts.
