the ultimate (54) Green Phantom finally surfaced this past Wednesday. It virtually "landed on our doorstep" from one of the kindest people we know of, and at a very reasonable price. Seemed like wretched-junk to my wife, so I had to clean-'er-up in a hurry, so no photos of the way it looked. I realized the potential of this 100% original
(except for repro tank) machine. After about 16 hours, over a three-day period, it's beyond astounding. So proud of it, that I just have to share some images. My Dad was a 60's/70's Schwinn dealer, so this bike is something I'll
cherish forever! -Billygoat (on training wheels)

I'm glad that I don't have to be "green with envy" anymore. 33 years since I spotted one at Macungie-Park bike show
and was instantly G-W-E. Just kidding, and I know you are, but love hearing it after my

"Good things come to those who wait.... patience is a virtue"
Not only do I believe in that, but no matter how much we may want something, we'll never "push" any situation. Most amazing part of this, is
that this Phantom was made four days earlier than my wife's blue & turquoise Panther Springer. Discovered this moments ago. They may have been in the warehouse together. Her Panther was gotten around 1977, when my Dad took it in trade, at his store. BTW, both bikes are in the same condition.
Phantom: Oct 27/28, 1954. Panther: Nov 1, 1954.
