MISC:   Restore two Panthers posted by: Jason on 3/15/2007 at 9:48:26 PM
I just picked up two early 50's Panthers, a men's and women's bikes. I'm going to strip them and refinish them (they've already been stripped and repainted by a prior owner) and replace parts as needed. How can I learn things like whether the tanks/chainguards on early 50's Panthers were fully or partially chromed, or the original handlebar size? I'm tempted to buy new chrome fenders, have the tanks and chainguards fully chromed and just paint the frames two-tone (custom colors). Not exactly a faithful restore. But it'd be cool looking. Thoughts?

Oh, and another thing--the head badges. Prior owner put some tin reproduction badges on the headtube that clearly did not fit the factory-drilled screw-holes. Any ideas on what original Panther head badges looked like. I've gone half blind trying to examine photos in a couple Schwinn books I have--never a good, clean head-on shot of a head badge.
