Punctures were just irreparable.” When Schwinn closed down their motorcycle operation they focused on modernizing schwinn tricycle the American bike and the tire was the first component they worked on. Frank reduced the wheel diameter from 28” to 26” and fattened the tire width from 1 1/8” to 2 1/8”.
