Online vintage part shops

Can anyone lead me to some good online part shops for vintage schwinns? I have a 66 Hollywood I'm trying to find some things for including a seat and basket.

Check out this thread here: C&V friendly bike shops

and I know ebay has a section under collectibles - transportation or something like that which usually has a fair supply of schwinn cruiser / heavyweight gear.

I've had good luck on a few things on ebay. I won an original repair manual and original saddle for an early 70's Collegiate on there just a week or two ago. Because there are a lot of old Schwinns out on the roads, a fair amount of parts show up on ebay. I'm about to fix up an old Varsity for a friend as well, and I plan on getting some of the parts I need off ebay.

As for an actual store, I can't really help you there, but I also haven't really looked for one. As another Schwinn owner, I wouldn't mind finding one myself.
