My local bike shop had the Schwinn sized seat posts in stock, so go check at your local shop. I think they are the old mtb size as well. My 1980ish Specialized Hard Rock has the same seat post size.

Don't forget you can get one of the bottom bracket adaptors and ditch the heavy 1 piece crank. I have been running of of the adaptors on my '71 SS and glad I did it. The adaptors are between $15 -...

Sorry to hear of your loss. Buy yourself a beater and save what parts you can. Rebuild when you can.

As was pointed out, you can get the nyloc type lock nuts. Then you can set the tension without it coming loose. You can get them in any hardware store.

Ace might be short on stainless metric, but you can always use galvanized for the short term.

Cables can make a difference. I went to upright bars on my '71 Schwinn SS as I just could not handle drops at 50. The rear brake cable wants to pull the handle bars to one side. i.e. the cable...

Well, it seems to be a $150 bike per a quick search. My guess is a new bike. However, if it is just cables, you can replace those for not much money.

Can someone give me the thickness of the brake boosters that are sometimes installed on centerpull brakes? I have access to stainless and aluminum plate and can fab one up.

Why do some have issues with the cable cutters for brake cable? Is is due to the diameter of the housing or what? It sounds like most wire rope cutters work great on the cable and shift cable, but...

You can try an easy out. Drill a pilot hole of the appropriate diameter, and then insert the easyout. You would want to get a colbalt bit, rather than high speed steel.
