Did some horse trading with @KevinM over the weekend and ended up with a 1995 100th Anniversary Schwinn Black Phantom that was still new in the box. I had one of these about four years ago and wrote and article about it here.

Ended up taking it out and putting it together. Not sure whether I'll keep it or not, but it will be fun to have for a while.

The tires are cracked and dry rotted and not ridable, so for now, it is still unridden. :D

Funny story about those models.

One year my Mom ordered what she thought was the Black Phantom model off of someone on Etsy for me as a present. I opened the wrapping and it was the Black Phantom box. When I opened the box I found out that someone had put the Columbia version in the wrong box. It was still cool so I never did anything about it. I had it sitting in my garage and it got bumped off of the shelf it was on and broke into several pieces.

I now have a Columbia die cast parts bike. :bigsmile:
