This listing is for 2 early model Bendix 2-Speed Automatic (kickback) Coaster Brake Hubs. The Red band hub (2 speed automatic w/28 hole) is brand new, never been laced and the Yellow band hub (2 speed OverDrive w/36 hole) has very little use. These hubs were made in the 1960's, made by The Bendix Corporation, and were used primarily on Schwinn Bicycles (Jaguars, Corvettes, Fleets, Typhoons, Starlets, and Hollywood’s etc..). This type of coaster brake hub would change gear ratios (shift gears) without any cables or hand controls. The driving gear ratio can be changed any time the rider desires by moving the pedals slightly in the braking direction. When you applied further back pressure on the pedals it activated the braking system. Made by The Bendix Corporation. The only identifiable markings are on the Red band hub, stamped on the brake arm (C & O). These hubs are truly collectable piece's of history.


The Red Band hub is 'Brand New' and in exceptional original condition (never been lased). The Yellow Band hub was lased into a Custom Schwinn Chopper Bicycle Project that was used only for parades. Maybe it has 20 miles on it. The sprocket shows almost no wear. ( Pictures Will Show Their Condition Well ). The hubs do not need any service, just lased into your collectable (Schwinn Krate, Stingray, Ballooner Bike, Elgin, Columbia, Shelby, Huffman, CWC, Colson, Roadmaster, Hawthorne or any other Custom Bicycle). Both hubs were inspected and tested by MannTeck Enterprises. Please . Hi-resolution pictures available upon request. These hubs are being sold “As Is-No Return” .
