Up for sale is a very original 1952/53 Schwinn Black Phantom! Lots of character on this one some may call it patina! This bike is fairly rough as far as most black phantoms are concerned, but that's what makes this one stand out.
With at least 90% of all phantoms out there sitting in restored condition, it's become tough to find unrestored examples. Obviously the seat is incorrect, but I believe everything else is original on the bike. One other large flaw is the rust hole in the front fender behind the headlight housing. The headlight internals are all present, but rusty. The switch does not move.
There are a few pieces missing: the taillight, headlight lens, and key [key half is broken and stuck in the lock] The hubs and bearings have been cleaned and greased. Original Schwinn front brake and handle. The front brake line is not frozen.The front drum brake mechanism actually works, but it is not effective as the pads are worn out I believe. Also, check out the original DeLuxe pedals with killer matching patina! This bike actually rides pretty nice honestly! It could use a little TLC and tires to become an everyday cruiser, or it could be a great candidate for restoration. I literally pulled this bike out of a barn about 3 years ago - so you can safely call it a "barn-find" if you would like!
The price we agree to is what you pay to get the bike to your door! Any questions - just message me.
