1948 SCHWINN B6 AUTOCYCLE TANK BIKE VINTAGE STREAMLINER/PHANTOM HORNET DX B607! Here is an original VINTAGE (I BELIEVE 1948 The serial number is A87832 and is stamped on the bottom of the cranks housing) men's SCHWINN B6/B607 Autocycle bicycle with 26 wheels. It is repainted blue and white 2-tone and is a beauty! If you like unique TOP OF THE LINE unrestored original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame, front SPRINGER FORK with "cycle lock" with key, frame mounted tank with horn inside, (untested) large Schwinn head badge, original deluxe Phantom style chainguard, deluxe Phantom/Autocycle sprocket, "AS" (Arnold Schwinn) seat post clamp, cool Messinger seat/saddle, wide cruiser handlebars with nice chrome, deluxe neck/stem with"AS" (Anrold Schwinn) bolts, Schwinn script hand grips, full fenders, fender mounted "Train" light, (untested) rear carrier 4 hole rear carrier RACK, nos rear fender mounted reflector, and more! This one has both "AS" neck bolts in place as well as the AS bolts on the Springer forks. Would be cool if you added a "fore brake" and or crossbar handlebars! I got this one just like you see it! This was basically the top of the line deluxe bike of the time! This one was obviously repainted. (not including any cost of the bike itself) Some people REALLY like this look of the color matched painted bikes like this vs the "1957 Chevy" look of the Black Phantom! The tires are 26x2.125. They are newer wide whitewall tires and do hold air. The bike has chrome raised center rims front and rear with a Shimano rear hub! (I was told this was added for rideability) The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 31. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28 1/2.
The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/2. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22.
The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. Skip all that and enjoy this one right away! This could be the star attraction of your collection! NOTED FLAWS This bike is a truly amazing find!
The bike was obviously repainted but looks sweet! It does have some chips and scratches.
The chrome on the wheels etc was not restored. Seat post and clamp would look nicer redone. I KNOW some of the parts are 1990s reproduction.(grips, tank, sprocket, etc) The tank should have the little gasket inserts between the frame as it has a tiny gap. (Not a huge deal but I like to be honest) IF you are a "nut and bolt purist" This is NOT the bike for you. If you would enjoy a good looking Schwinn at a great price, this may be the perfect bike for you! Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to) Overall one of the coolest old Chicago bikes you could ask for!
These don't come along often! Take good care of this one and it will only go UP in value!
This bike could be the star center attraction of your collection! I hope you love it! This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted.A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike!
A great classic bike at a great price Why not ride a bike? If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park!
Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one! People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes!
They are more popular now than ever before! This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone!It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while.
(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us.Fed Ex just increased the rates. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing.
