Bicycle Tank Restorations

We have quite a few restorations going on at the moment. Check out the progress on several classic bicycles in the shop this week. We have been working on a 1948 Schwinn B6, the bike that in 1949 became the iconic American Schwinn Bicycle known as the Black Phantom. Below you can see several bicycle tanks being artfully and carefully recreated to their original factory specs. You may recognize a 24” Schwinn DX tank from 1947 painted in blue with its iconic white wings, a red tank from a Red 1952 Schwinn Stream liner and a metallic blue tank off a Columbia that was once sold in Goodyear tire dealerships.
