Cruisin' on my Bluebird
No stats but my experience is red is the least common color-for boys bikes. Black may have been the only color offered initially. The Phantom was a late year offering starting about the second week of August 1949. Within a month or so all three colors were available-black, green, and red. 1955 is the only year they produced a girls Phantom and in addition to the three colors mentioned blue was added. Some folks erroneously think this was a Christmas color but in fact the color was available on girls Phantoms the whole year. There are threads on here debating the boys blue Phantom but I personally believe a few of these were factory produced. V/r Shawn
IN MY 30 YEARS WORKING ON SCHWINN PHANTOM LOCKS, RED WAS MUCH MORE
COMMON THAN GREEN PHANTOMS.
ALSO DURING THE 40'S EARLY 50'S PLANE JANE SCHWINNS WERE RED FOR GIRLS AND
BLUE FOR BOYS BASED ON ADS OF THAT ERA!
I HAVE NOTICED, RED AUTOS HAVE ALSO BEEN COMMON FOR WOMEN, ESPECIALLY FOR THEIR FIRST CAR.
