    Time to let someone else enjoy my living room art. 98% original, tires were replaced, that's it. Serial # J9. Hard to find last year phantom with this chain guard decal. Bike is overall very clean, all old grease removed and all clean bearings were packed with park tool bicycle grease, rides like a dream. The bow pedals are free but don't spin too good they are a little gritty, could use wd40 soak. Horn in the tank works great, the inside of the tank is very very nice. I put batteries in the front light and it turned on but couldn't get the switch to turn it off, probably a ground issue and easy fix for someone. The tail light is also clean on the inside but has a disconnected wire and I'm sure it will work with a little tinkering. The fenders have some dings and could use a roller, I would say the chrome is above average for a phantom and that goes for all of the chrome. The worst spot is the rear wheel around the valve stem that has some pitting in the chrome. The front whee has one ding by the valve stem on the non chain guard side. The rear rack is bent down a little near the tail light and has an American flag sticker on it. The frame still sports it's original NY bicycle license on the down tube. Both bolts in the handlebar stem are AS. Overall a really nice bike, any questions? This will be carefully packed and shipped through bike fights coming from 80002 Arvada, Co

    It is nice. Had that been a Red 59 I would have bought it at your first price.

    I remember that Phantom, but now I can't remember the Caber who had it.
