  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    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!

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