good place to buy 26" by 1 3/8" wheels?
Hi All, I have a 60 hawthorne/fuji (swear to god every part on it is fuji I even have fuji stamped bolts for christ's sake) but it is re branded hawthorne by marshal fields (dept store in chicago land area where I grew up). They may have added the rear wheel it is stamped hawthorne (crazy).
Anyways, I'm going to try to save the original wheels from it. But if I can't I'd need to find replacement wheels for it.. It is a 1 spd coaster brake (the back wheel seems like it is the most likely to make it). The front is a little iffy, may be able to get away with just replacing the a few spokes. Anyways if you know where one can buy wheels of this size let me know... I'm striking out.
