If the OP's trike is like that one, the chain is pretty generic "single-speed" chain: 1/2" x 1/8" and the tubes are standard 24 x 1 3/8". The tires are going to be tough to find: they're 24 x 1 3/8" that fit a Schwinn S-6 rim. You can find 24 x 1 3/8" tires at many department stores, but they will not fit
. You need to find tires that fit Schwinn
rims. Here's one source:
Old Schwinns generally are pretty durable. Beyond the weird tire sizes, everything should be easy to find. Clean it up, polish the chrome, go for a ride.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
