My first job was at our local Schwinn shop in 1967 putting new ones together. Worked a lot of 1968 to buy this one. It was the first of it’s kind the shop received :

... Taking this '52 Schwinn Phantom to the Memory Lane swap meet this morning ...
I'm gonna be thinning the heard somewhat, but unsure if I do a "classifieds" or here for bike guys..... Either way-.............
We've got one in the shed! I LOVE it! They were known as LeRun, and the only ones out there that I've seen were prizes handed out by MTV decades ago... we call ours "Larry".
... Just got this restored 3-tone 1952 Black Phantom last week ... Rides like a dream! ...
What will 25 bucks buy you on a nice Friday morning. One owner ladies Schwinn, newer 26" tires, ready to ride. I couldn't pass it up. Gary
I posted this earlier, just a frame. Here it is as a riding bike. Rides great.....does it need an engine? Gary
I think it needs to have the double strut tubes extended down to the lower down tube.
I’m open to suggestions. Explain your strut tube idea in more detail. Two gently curving tubes extending from the end of the two top tubes down to the main down tube? I thought that a reproduction Schwinn tank would look good also. And maybe even the extra long front fork struts, Vintage Schwinn fenders?
Yes, in my mind the frame would look more complete, not to mention the increased torsional rigidity.
Holy Crap, HA, We did the same thing in western Kansas. Yep, I loved being a 70s kid. We survived.
Here’s how the half tall bike got started. Computer drawing (acad) and a couple extra bike frames
Here is the next Schwinn frame project. Outlaw mini bike idea from right here on the H.A.M.B. gary
Save yourself some grief and incorporate folding foot pegs.
I think I have some old twisted chopper folding foot pegs in my scrap metal pile. Thanks for the idea. Gary
Here is where the idea came from. Mine will be different. Gary
Here's one I recently completed. Since it was a homebuilt it took me more paperwork at the DMV than when I got married AND bought my first house combined.
In the 70s we were not that High Tech. We just winged it.
This one I did for my son. It’s a civilian copy of a folding paratrooper bike(ww2) , made in japan in the late 40s
Just a bump, and a few I spotted at Hershey.
