The American Bicycle

This is a 1950’s Black Phantom bicycle  from Schwinn.  I  love  the look of the Phantom. It has a strong essence and elegance.  When he heard that this beauty was for sell, we drove over 200 miles right away to make it part of  The Vintage Lab  collection.

Our latest find is Schwinn Jaguar Mark IV.   It is an awesome middleweight men’s

bicycle with many features including deluxe chrome trim, rear carrier, horn, cushion

saddle and spring-type fork.  I have to tell you  when I first saw it, I couldn’t stop

looking at its radiant color and amazing  chrome trim.  Mark IV models are from

1959 to all the way to 1962. 100% American made.
