Would you have a pic of what saddle is right for a 55? When it was hanging in the Bike Shop, it had the repro seat from the stool on it.

Nice Phantom .. great overall look to it .. the seat on your deluxe Hornet in the background looks to be the correct seat for the Phantom that year with the newer style non locking bolt through springer up front .. later years would have the plastic Schwimn approved embossed seat ... Also a set of Schwinn AS end cap pedals like the ones on the limited edition Phantom bar stool would be the original pedals for the bike ... Love the Caddy too ..1964 ?? ... You'll love the ride of the Cantilever Schwinn frames .. the best Postwar riders hands down ... they're what made Schwinn a Icon & a legend .. Ridden not Hidden - Frank

Thanks Frank! I will swap the seats out before the maiden voyage. Did these ever come with a S/A tri coaster or was an AB used with a front drum to help out... or was bendix 2 speeds available only? I know someone else made a 3 speed but cant remember what it was. It is about to be windy season here and speeds would help.

The Caddy is a 59 fleetwood a full 19 1/2 feet long. Her name is Large Marge. I have fit 9 Italians in the trunk.
