Schwinn Phantom History and Options Phantom History 
Phantom History: 
The 1949 Schwinn Black Phantom was a truely deluxe bicycle. Chrome  was King and the Black Phantom had more than it's fair share. Every kid on the block wanted one of these New Schwinn Phantom bikes. And  why not? Just imagine yourself riding one... big chrome fenders, built-in headlight, chrome spring in the front. Big  wide seat and carrier with built-in tail light.. Just like your dads car. The Schwinn Phantom hit the nail on the head with their introduction and sales of Schwinn Phantoms went through the roof.. so to speak.
So it's no wonder that Schwinn Phantom bicycles have stood the test of time and are still around. Some Phantoms are in decent shape and only need minor touch up cosmetics, while others are rusted hulks waiting for someone, quite possibly you, to restore them to their former chrome-plated, big and bold glory. Our New Video "How to Restore Your Schwinn Phantom" has nostalgic scenes, lots of schwinn phantom facts such as model introduction dates, special Phantom options, when the options were patented and more Phantom Facts. Any Schwinn Phantom Collector would appreciate this accurate information. You will know exactly how to find the date YOUR Schwinn Phantom was built and tons of other unique facts and myths presented in this fantastic introductory section! Schwinn Phantom Options such as expander brake

We show variations in spring fork design and bolt scripts for your Schwinn Phantom Phantom 
Inspecting Your Schwinn Phantom 
We inspect every part of the Schwinn Black Phantom we found in detail and you will learn how to tell if the parts on YOUR Phantom bicycle are original or not and what to look for when deciding weather to purchase a particular schwinn phantom or continue looking for a better original to restore. Face it - sometimes you just have to buy it (because It's a Phantom!)no matter what but other times you have a choice and this section of the video will help you know more and make better informed decisions 

Phantom Serial Numbers and Date coding 
In this section of the video, We show you how to identify the the serial number locations for your Phantom and give some history to the serial number mystery. On the Phantom frame which it's cantiliever design was patented by Schwinn long before the introduction of the Phantom, There are a couple common places you can find your serial numbers for your Phantom and those are no real secret. The first is on the underside of the crank hanger on the Phantom frame.  This indicates an earlier build date. Specific date ranges are given on the 'Restore your Phantom' video. 
The second serial number area for your Schiwnn Phantom might be located on the left side of the Rear Fork, where the Axel bolts on to the Phantom Frame. Again, in the video, we show you exactly where to look. 
Now later model bicycles 1970  on up will have serial numbers near the headbadge. But since those are not the original Phantom's we are looking to restore, If your phantom has the serial number by the headbadge, it's not very old. Perhaps it has been assembled from other parts. There are several things we show you so you can tell a Original Phantom apart from a built-up phantom.

From minor items on the Schwinn Phantom  to Major expenses- Not only will you be a more knowledgeable collector after watching the video, but you will be able to avoid costly mistakes and be able to spot bargins (even on non-phantom bikes!)

Schwinn Phantom - Trim Re-Paint & Re- Stripe
