Here is a Schwinn Traveler Single Speed with Coaster Brake that
needed a complete rebuild. This is the frame with most of the parts disassembled. It's a nice frame!
All the parts were degreased and washed. See the Shin Process for details
This is the bottom headset being re-greased.
OK! This is looking great so far. Most of it is put back together and awaiting wheels!
These are 26"x 1 3/8" wheels with rear coaster brake. Wheels are a pain in the butt but to get them clean and shiny, you gotta go at it with wire brushes and soap.
This is the first time I've worked on a coaster brake. Pretty neat design. I took this pic to study the assembly and also to remember how to put the contraption back together.
For the rims, to keep track of where I am, I usually start where the tube valve hole is and scrub every spoke nipple all the way around til I get back to the hole. This is the toughest part.
Ah! Clean and shiny. Use degreaser for and a finer brass brush to get the tighter spots if needed!
