Hi tiffini,Schwinn did make a trike called town and country,and they are also hard to come by ,you might get lucky and find a town and country or a trike for around $50.00 to $100.00,but if you go through a dealer expect to pay lots more.by,Joshua J.

Hi everyone,
I am new to this hobby, but got myself a Schwinn Phantom repo. yesterday as I like the classic shape very much. However, as I reside in Singapore such bikes and parts are almost non-existent. Can anyone kindly direct me, as to where I can find accessories for my bike such as the fender mount lights, horn tank, speedo, etc.

Thanks and warmest Regards
Bryan

That's the thing about repop parts. I wouldn't put a foreign-made Schwinn reproduction part on a bike. But I would put a foreign-made no-name brand part on a bike. The no-name part isn't trying to imitate something it isn't.
