AGE / VALUE:   schwinn phantom bmx posted by: carl on 5/31/2000 at 8:49:17 AM
I have a early bmx bike made by schwinn. not a stingray frame.It is in good shape it is all complete. the chaingard says phantom. It is blue with yellow tuff II's anyone know how much it is worth?

   schwinn phantom bmx posted by Scott Bartlett on 5/31/2000 at 1:16:06 PM

Sorry to hear about your luck guy. Hopefully, you didn't pay over $5 for the Schwinn junk. Again, I feel for you man, and I'm sorry about your mis-fortune.


   RE:schwinn phantom bmx posted by doc on 5/31/2000 at 7:20:08 PM
Carl was looking for a reply unlike anything you would ever give.Why be so rude??

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   schwinn phantom bmx posted by Dan on 6/1/2000 at 1:36:45 AM
Carl I also just picked up a 20" Schwinn blue BMX bike complete with the
yellow nylon wheels and a black Phantom chain guard. I was told the chain
guard was not stock, however yours sounds similar to mine.

I paid $50.00 for it and think it is a cool part of BMX history. Let me know
if you have any other items for sale or trade.

It's nice that there is a website that you can hide behind an alias. You can't even leave an e-mail address? I'll bet your whole family is a bunch of rats. Not a problem. As far as Schwinn, you can have all of the Schwinn stuff you want, but they still never made quality bmx goods.


   RE:Doc, mind your own business posted by John on 6/1/2000 at 12:08:46 PM
The Sting. Junk? I don't think so!

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   schwinn phantom bmx posted by JIMBOB on 6/2/2000 at 10:35:51 AM
The bike you describe is the first bmx bike that I ever owned. Mine was black with yellow lettering and Im sure the black chain guard was from that color bike. I do remember the blue version too. Mine never had tuffs though. Also, mine had a single headtube gusset but when I broke the frame, schwinn replaced it with a double headtube gusset. Id say its worth 50 bucks in fair condition since I doubt that it is cr-mo. I hate schwinn's 'pinch' type rear dropouts-very cheap looking but otherwise the geometry was OK.

WANTED:   Torker 280x posted by: Greg on 5/28/2000 at 1:05:52 PM
I just picked up a Torker 280x bike from a buddy of mine (complete w/ Torker bars, Torker 6 bolt stem, Sugino Super Maxy cranks, and Shimano DX pedals). I've only been bugging him to pull it out of the rafters for about 3 or 4 years now! He finally let loose with it today. I had to pull it down myself! It has some surface rust but should clean up well. The Araya 7x rims are just about perfect.

Does anyone have a set of NOS decals for this F/F? I need a sticker for the bars as well. I'm also interested in a set of Tioga Comp 2 tires (prefer NOS).
