  • My bikes in trade for a Stude

    1985 Western Flyer made for Western Auto Stores by Columbia manufacturing of Massachusetts using their original tooling for Columbia's top of the line bicycle of 1951. The other two are Schwinn Taiwan circa 1999 boy and girl set having a 7 speed internal shift hub with coaster brake. Billed as a resurrection of the Black Phantom from the late 40's to late 50's. Just thought some would like to se 'em. Couldn't post photos in stove huggers. Will trade for Studebaker. cheers jimmijim Ain't they perdy?

                  Schwinn originally made phantoms of different colors. Black Phantom were black. There were also Green Phantoms. There were reproductions made of both as I recall

                    Not to change the subject, but I must say that this '61 Hawk is an especially nice looking Studebaker.

                      I happened to stop in a bicycle store today (Helen's) where they had bike's with prices from $329.99 to $7,999.99!!! The $8,000.00 bike WAS on sale for a mere $5,999.99. It appeared to have 36 gears, disk brakes, and was so light .... perhaps it was made of Carbon Fiber?? (Don't know....nothing on the 'tags' referred to any of the structure or possible options). The 'brand name' on most they had including the really light one was "TREK." But, I really like the green/white color scheme of your good old solid Schwinn!
