    They don't look like Schwinn rims.

    Interesting....hmmmmm any other thoughts? You think they would be worth anything to anybody? Should I just scrap?
    Thanks,

    They appear to be drop center types vs. the ‘flat profile’ S2 rims that would have stock on a Phantom of that era.

    Hope this helps..

    I wouldn't throw anything away if I had storage space. If they are true and not too badly rusted, then keep them. The chrome back then was pretty good, so they may clean up nicely. I'll bet the rear hub is a red band Bendix.

    Actually, considering they may not be complete. Would anyone like to pay shipping and I will mail them for free? Kinda of a pay it forward. Deal?

    Thanks for all the feedback. I posted in the "Pay It Forward Section" of the forum. Perhaps someone will be interested in just paying the shipping.
