    I was hoping to get a few more pictures, but ran out of time. I had a blast working on this bike, and I admire all the passion and creativity on this site. Very cool.

    The idea behind this build was to create a modern version of the famous Schwinn Black Phantom. I used a Centennial Phantom frame and tricked it out with modern gear. The thing rides like a Ducati!

    Wicked! Bet that thing corners great with a little weight over the front wheel.

    Tough bike and the colors rock! I'm thinking Schwinn could sell every one of them!
