You asked, and now we have it. Dress up your vintage Schwinn cruiser with a fresh set of 26 x 1 3/4 S-7 whitewalls. Made by Kenda just for middleweight Schwinn bikes made in the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. This is an unusual size tire and manufacturers do not make a specific S-7. Never fear...we have an appropriate tube for this tire.

I decided to resurrect my 1955 Schwinn Tiger used heavily by me in the mid to late 50's. Of course it needed new tires and tubes so I checked local bike stores--no luck. Checked on-line and gave BikemanforU a try. Awesome! Most of my questions were answered by his clever videos. Ordered by phone via Pamela--she is very knowledgeable and personable! My order arrived promptly and damage-free. Tires (26 x 1 3/4)fit perfectly and were very easy to install. A wonderful experience to ride my old bike again!! I highly recommend BikemanforU.

I have a 60 year old schwinn bike, which has been in storage many years. Needless to say, old tires had dry-rotted. I looked locally for replacements, and found that they were not readily available for this model. I took the numbers from the sidewall of the old tires, got online, and found exactly what I needed here. They were shipped quickly and I am well pleased with the service. I am sorry to say I haven't used them yet, because I'm in the process of restoring the bike before I put it back on the road.
