    Schwinn Grips (with the Bubble Top)

    Anyone know where to get the original Schwinn-style cruiser grips? I got the Sun-Lites because I just needed some grips, but they're not the same, with the little bubble thingie on the top. I don't seem to find them readily on eBay, either.

    Suggestions?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Ive got two sets in black.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I think I'm still on PM restriction since I have fewer than 50 posts. If you want to PM me with price and email address I'm interested.

    I was wondering this as well, as I'm putting some touring-style bars on my Schwinn Racer, and I lost a pair on my old Sanctuary grips to time and weather. Since my company's doing year-end inventory today, I'll do some research...but if @ilikebikes has some for sale, I say go for it!

    Update: For future reference, here's an excerpt from Schwinn's FAQs page:

    "If you bought your Schwinn at an independent bike shop, please contact the shop to help you get replacement parts.

    If you bought your Schwinn at a big box retailer or sporting goods store, please see the information directly below.

    Call us to purchase parts you'll need a major credit card and must be 18 or older. 800-626-2811"


    I'm not sure if they'll have that exact part, but I'd be willing to bet they do...in the meantime, do business with @ilikebikes...he's legit.

    At least I still have a stray green glitter grip if one quits on Germaine...I still have the black ones that it came with in 1995 but they rub off on your hands.
