The Schwinn Black Phantom is arguably the most desirable vintage Schwinn bicycle ever made! Most of them were discovered back in the 1980s and the 1990s and restored back then by collectors. To find an UNRESTORED LADIES bike like this today, is next to impossible! I LOVE everything about this bike! YOU NEVER SEE THESE IN ANY CONDITION!This is the TOP OF THE LINE bike of the time! Few were lucky enough to get one! This bike has a cool ladies cruiser style frame and forks with ORIGNAL paint, original deluxe chainguard, Schwinn locking SPRINGER fork with AS (Arnold Schwinn) bolts AND KEY, bike woudl have came with a frame mounted HORN TANK. Long gone but NOT hard to find and not expensive large Schwinn head badge, full fenders, (painted) original metal fender mounted "train" headlight WITH LENS and SWITCH unested, rear carrier RACK, wide cruiser style handlebars, Schwinn script hand grips, cruiser style seat, (has rips) regular deluxe sprocket, newer pedals, and more! Maybe you have a mens version?
Now is a RARE chance to own a matching ladies bike! You almost NEVER see these in any condition! Of the few of these that were made, many were "parted out" to restore or build mens bikes!
To find one in any condition these days is harder than you think! Imagine the pure FUN of riding this one at your local car show or cruise night! The "rat rod" guys and girls will go crazy and ask where you ever found it! The tires are 26x2.125. They are vintage SCHWINN TYPHOON CORD tires and do hold air.The bike has chrome SCHWINN S-2 rims front and rear with a NEW DEPARTURE rear hub! The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) CHECK IT OUT! This one came with the RARE OPTIONAL front DRUM brake! (has the housing but is missing the "pork chop" and lever) DIMENSIONS The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 26. 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 21 1/2. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust. NOTED FLAWS This bike would need a restoration for show or enjoy it in its current "hot rod" or "rat rod" type patina.
I LOVE the fact that this bike STILL has its original paint! The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality.
Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to) Rear wheel is missing a spoke.
Bike does not have a head badge. Make sure you check out ALL pics! 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.
