Schwinn Headset replacement
#1
Hi gang, i ride a 1978 Schwinn Continental as my commuter bike. I'd like to replace the headset. What size do i use? Can i still get one? I've got the tools, i've just never bothered with a old schwinn before...we used to just tighten them down when they got funky and leave it at that....LOL.

Should be a standard 1" threaded. You might measure the "stack height" of yours to make sure you get something close.
