BALLOON:   Phantom Seat Recovered posted by: J. Wayne Jones on 6/24/2006 at 5:23:18 PM
I am trying to find the name of a person that restores Phantom seats, I think he is in Michigan and its like the saddle shop or saddlery. I had a card a few years back but have lost it. He puts the Schwinn logo on the leather along with the crome trim buttons. If anyone knows his name I would appreciate an e-mail.

Does anyone have or know where to find a picture of the bottom end of a Monark twin spring fron fork showing the correct assembly of the plates, shoulder bolts, and fender braces? Thanks much, George.
