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.

i need to decide what color to paint these wheels, ignore the fenders
One of these bottom bracket adapters,
And possibly Cottered cranks?
So far I have about 30 off road miles on the bike, it the funnest bike I've ever owned by far.
