I could have one but I'm not really interested in shipping it outside Europe.
where are you?

If you explain what is broken in detail, people will usually be able to come up with a solution - if each of those items are broken it would be fascinating to know how and why!

Is your Schwinn cotterless? If so, they have a replacement hub at UDC for $20. It will take any cotterless cranks.

It won't directly swap out if you have cottered cranks. The cotterless version has 36 spokes, and the cottered version is 28.

How would you be able to detatch the spokes from the Hub?

You can look at Sheldon Browns wheelbuilding page for a good tutorial, but you might be able to find a bike shop to do the build for you if you haven't done it before.

Really though, unless you have a cotterless already it could get pretty pricey to build a new wheel for an old Schwinn.

I think they went cotterless in the mid '80's, and they had blue rims for a few years. Count the spokes if you're not sure what cotterless is. If it has 36 spokes it will work with the UDC hub.

Shipping would be around $50, plus the cost of the wheel itself!
A 1980's Schwinn hub from unicycle.com is $20 and $10 for cranks. need spokes as well? (this is why I'd like to see a photo) that's an extra $62. A complete Torker CX 24" wheelset is $60 which could do the job again, depending on the age ofthe wheel.

could you post some photos? show the bent hub and crank in particular, as well as the bearing holders. that way we can see the extent of the problem and the age of the wheel which will make a difference.
It could be possible that you can get new cranks and hub (you may need spokes too) and take it to a local bike shop to build it for you.

I don't know why these unicycle sites have such exorbitant prices for simple spokes. I usually pay between .20¢ and .50¢ per spoke at a bike shop.

In the UK prices fluctuate widely with the exchange rates - I last paid 80p for some standard spokes at a good LBS which is pretty much in line with those prices.
If they need rolling specifically that's a greater cost too of course.

I buy my spokes from Excel Sports for .50. They cut and thread them with no extra charge. Of course I can go and pick them up, but the shipping shouldn't be much more than I pay for tax.

From what I can gatther the images you want us to see are still on your local machine, and haven't been uploaded.

If you want to upload photo's you should use the "attach files" dialog under "additional options". You will see it below the text edit window that you are typing in.

Anyway, since it's 28 spoke it is most likely a cottered hub, and the UDC hub won't work. You would have to build an entirely new wheel with new hub, spokes, rim, tire, tube, and cranks. This would be a costly undertaking. My guess would be that the tire size is S7 24x1 3/4. That is a proprietary Schwinn size that they finally abandoned in the mid '80's, also when they went to the 36 hole hub. Of course if it's just the cranks or pedals that are bent it would be much cheaper to replace them.

The pictures are up there now sorry had to fix it.

Interesting. Those are cotterless cranks. I can't tell in the photo's what is bent. Are you sure that the hub spindle is bent? If it's the cranks they are easy to replace, and being cotterless gives you a lot to choose from. I think that some of the Schwinns had 1/2" pedals, and I don't know if you will be able to get new cranks that use those pedals. The standard for three piece cranks is 9/16" now. So if it is just the cranks you will probably have to get new cranks and pedals. Still far cheaper than replacing the whole wheel.

If it is the hub you might want to call UDC to make sure that their hub isn't 28 hole. I'm pretty sure it is 36 though, as I have one of the uni's with the blue rim and 36 holes.
