Ok I know they don't have motors but they are still of the two wheel variety. Anyone here interested in vintage bicycles?? I just added a 1951 Schwinn Black Phantom to my small collection. It is pretty rough but should look like the ones in the mags in a few months. What do you guys have??

Later, Eric

I've got a 77' Schwinn Mag Scrambler still.
Sold all my 80's BMX stuff on Ebay a few years ago.
Made a small fortune then blew it on racing.

Kieth,

I understand that!!! The next bike I would love to have is a Grape Krate Schwinn Stingray. You know the ones with the shifters. A Pea Picker or a Grey Ghost would be cool as well. Let me know if you come across something. I am in the process of building a 1972 Schwinn Stingray Deluxe Junior for Ethan and an old custom for me. The Custom is an old 24 inch Columbia frame with a Stebler Tank, springer front end, bobbed fenders, rear slick, ram horn bars, etc., etc.. You'll see it at the next round, it is not quite ready for MSR.

Yes, I can remember it like yesterday, "Mama, I wanna three speed stingray bike!" I got a Raleigh 3 speed with 26" wheels. I was a little too young and stupid to realized it was a MUCH better bicycle. LOL But, it cost my poor mom a small fortune in the 60s, $60, and I certainly showed my appeciation.

I think "banana" bike was a pretty cool moniker, LOL.

My first new and "real" bicycle was a 1975 Schwinn Stingray. It was yellow and came with a number plate already on the bars. That is what made it so cool.

I've got a late 1930's BSA roadster style bicycle. British Empire's finest! It was bought used in Singapore in the late 1940's.
