I went to look at a 50 woman's bike that looked to be a Black Phantom and was, She also had these 2 bikes and a couple 20 inch bikes, I`m more of a 50-60`s guy so any info on the 2 older bikes would be awesome.

The Ranger has the wrong rear wheel on it but I have the correct one. The Pullman wheels have been changed also and did not come with the correct ones. I think that is why the chain wheel is newer.

Nice finds - looks like the Ranger bars are incorrect as well, but it has a bunch of other good OG parts

The Schwinn will come out looking really nice after some cleaning. Good finds!

Accordingly, Girl Phantom only 1 year 1955 and maybe a few late 54 frames for 55 xmas and would have 1955 and up "New style springer". Your bike has pre-1954/5 springer fork. Pieced together on Girl's frame of another name/model.

The A&S built Mead Ranger may have a 1X0,000 series sequence number, on the bottom bracket.
The date might be extrapolated from there;
(I guesstimate a rule of eight; i.e., 1X+8).

Someone please correct me, I've always known Mead Motobike handle bars to have a non removable crossbar...Am I wrong? Are these handlebars and grips correct????

Maybe not an A&S built Mead then; (thought it might be because of the taller frame).
Westfield also built for Mead Chicago, and your example might be a 1930-H.
The 1930’s Mead Christmas ads show the bar hardware.
