    Hey there everyone.. as I mentioned on my Re introduction post, I dropped out of this Hobby a few years back. So with that said, I'd like to show you all what brought me back..

    I happened to be browsing Craigslist and came across this.

    At first glance she didnt look like much but caught my interest anyway due to it being a springer.
    Then I noticed the grips, sprocket, and deluxe pedals.. Thought to my self "This could have been a Phantom" and well I've always wanted one, so I met the guy and brought it home. 20180711_173714.jpg

    I took it apart cleaned it up, and made some adjustments to make her a decent rider. I found original red paint inside the head tube and black in the crank case, add the fact that the springer is the locking type, and I was convinced!

    Naturally the only thing that would make sence at this point would be to go on the hunt for parts..which I did. While I did manage to find some missing priginal parts..

    I found a gentleman parting out a 90s repop and sourced the seat, fenders and pedals from him.. I will eventually repaint the whole thing again and not rush it this time.. and will send all the chrome out to get redone.

    And well..here she is!
