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.
