I have recently purchased a 1965 tradewind that's been sitting for a couple of years do any of you guys know the part # for the bearings?
Thanks
Mike

Do you know that the bearings need replaced or are you just speculating due to age? I'd think they've been replaced at some point already. Maybe have them checked.... you could get lucky and they only need repacked.

Talking Hi Mike

Most bearings have a part number stamped on them . If you are doing the job your self take a sample to a local bearing house. Do not forget to replace the seals.

If you are doing this as a PM, you might want to spend your $ on something else, unless there are issues. Check the races in the hub. If there are no issues I would repack and install a new seal.

Wheel Bearing Maintenance

Save your money when you can and spend it for things it will need. And I bet it will need things.

Did you replace the grease seals?

That is a "must" unless you like to take chances.
