    Circa 1967 Schwinn Deluxe Typhoon Questions

    A coworker of mine wants to get rid of this bike. I think it would make an excellent cruiser & communter. So, before I get both of our hopes up & drive over & look at the thing, can anybody tell me if I can still get parts, especially tires & tubes for it? Also - any idea what it's worth? Sounds like it is in pretty good shape - garaged for many years. Thanks in advance for your wise(a55) replies.

    grab it!

    well, if he's not asking a ton of cash.

    yeah parts are available. Tires & tubes too (26") Are you looking for OEM stuff?

    check the Schwinn boards http://www.schwinnbike.com/heritage/forums.php (they should look familiar ;-) )
