This bike is a 1952 Black Phantom. My Dad bought this bike in High school from a friend who found it in an alley. He painted it yellow and rode it for a while, but as soon as he found a better frame, this bike was parted out because of the missing fender brace. After 30 years of being abandoned as almost a bare frame, I finally got my hands on it. This was my first "rat rod" bike. Here it is halfway through being built the first time in 2011. kept it as a cruiser for a few years, got bored. I plan to continue to build it as a klunker. I will not paint it. I will not clean it. The seat will remain.
