The Schwinn Phantom was a Dream

Not exactly the same bike that Pee Wee rode, but really close and in my opinion it lives up to its cool name, “Phantom”. Such a beautiful bike – you should be mine.

    Well, back in the day, it was pretty flash. You’ve got to keep in mind the time-frame in which the ad was posted.

    A sturdy-looking bike.

    Here in the big city, most efficient rides are like that (without the Swinn logo) cuz high-falutin’ bikes get stolen in a thieving minute.

    Older rides (even without gears) are everywhere and fix up nicely, with little effort.
