    Yeah, I had to search quite a bit online to get them. And yeah, the low max PSI was weird. 45 is acceptable for my 26" x 2.1" tires, but for 26" x 1 3/8"? I generally overinflated them, but still got...

    Yep. The confusion regarding 571/650C is that the original idea (at least in Schwinn's usage) was a new wheel/tire size for their "middleweight" cruisers". This 571/650C was called 26" x 1 3/4" by...

    I've seen that same badge on a Raleigh Superbe that I spotted in Anacortes, WA a few years back. The bike appears to be 70's vintage.
