ben their looking at buying a downer bike wright now. but I know if I bought it. I would not have the hart. to strip it for the Schwinn parts I need. so I would just fix it up. when cool pops up it's hard to resist taking it home.Very true but for me the thrill of the hunt is over... I've found one. I've owned one. I've restored one. I'd rather have cool bikes I can ride and enjoy comfortably than have a piece of eye candy just hanging on the wall to brag about and make other collectors jealous. Don't get me wrong I love having a Mini Twinn in my collection and it's huge bragging rights but I never ride it so it doesn't get seen and appreciated as it should. I have not yet owned a Black Phantom or Red Phantom and restoring them to their former glory would to me bring just as much joy as it did when I restored the Mini Twinn and additional joy from being able to ride and show off my work. Not to mention the storage factor. Tandems take up a lot of space and the two Phantoms could be hung up on the bike hooks. I guess I'm talking myself into this deal... But maybe that's a good thing.
what's this scale down you speak of? I never heard of it.Sounds like you're in a similar boat to mine. I've got a ton of frames and parts I need to use up, so I can hurry up and scale down the collection.
