Have a chance to buy this bike from a lady but she has no clue if it is a reproduction. She could not find a serial number under the crank.
Could anyone give me some advice what else I could ask her to look for?
It's not a Centennial model. Wrong fork, rear reflector, seat, chainring and pedals. It could be a 55 or later frame with a lot of parts just added to it. Ask her to look at the left rear dropout for a serial number. It's a nice bike but in my opinion it's parts all put together. Nothing wrong with that though.
It will cost you about three bills to get a correct seat and another hundy for the correct pedals. Could have a lot of repo stuff hanging on it and may not have even started life as a Phantom. I have nothing against properly restored bikes but would never buy a restored Phantom. V/r Shawn
I hope someone can help me with these questions. Any help with details and pricing would be much appreciated. How can you tell a reproduction Roadmaster Luxury Liner from the original? Also could I get some opinions on this JC Higgins colorflow?
If you get it cheap. Ok. If they want top dollar it's up to you. It has wrong seat wrong pedals
wrong neck wrong pin stripes and wrong darts on the paint. Pinstripes on tank and guard look like thin masking tape?
