SCWHINN front axle replacement
My old 1967 Schwinn Racer (Sturmney Archer 3-speed hub) has a broken front axle, and one of the bearing holders (the clawed thingy that holds the ball bearings) also is damaged.
I checked the usual source for replacement parts:
but all I see are parts for the rear axle.
Will the rear axle work in the front wheel hub? My broken front axle doesn't have the pinion that is found on the rear axle.
And is the bearing holder assembly interchangeable between the front and rear hubs?
Any thoughts on how to proceed?
