    Do they make?

    26X1.375 wheel with coaster brakes? I have a sears/puch womens 3 speed that I took the back wheel off to put on the mans bike I have (same model 3 speed) and since the fender where not the originals on the womans bike It had short wald fenders I took them off to put on my raleigh C30 I thought that if I could get a 26 x 1 3/8 wheel with coaster brake I would put it together that way I would hate to see a good lugged steel frame go to scrap

    Even though they are mathematically equal, 26 x 1.375 and 26 x 1-3/8 are two different sizes. See http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html
