Very happy overall with my purchase. A couple of downsides: The seat isn't very comfortable for long rides. A pad cover will sort this. The "horn" is a piezo buzzer of the cheapest design. I didn't bother putting batteries in after testing it. My front light arrived non-functional, and my tail rack was bent during shipping. I will contact Schwinn about these two items. Ride is great. Comfortable cruiser gearing means it's always in a rather chilled out gear. If you need to stand for hills the handlebar sweep allows you tons of room to lean into it. Handles like a big cruiser should. Half bike- half team of horses. Very fun to ride around. I was able to keep up with my wife on her mountain bike and enjoyed the 6 mile break in ride.

Great bike with some issues to sort.
Im happy with it.
Not too bad for China made. Pictures show two different sprockets and pedals, I got the better ones. Could only see the bike through a large hole in the box that the shipper made, but looks decent. Definitely keeping it in the box as a collectible. I bought two so maybe I will assemble one. I dont think too many were made. My box reads 35 of 192. Also haven't checked to see if it has an actual horn in the tank because tank is boxed separately.
If youre a Schwinn lover its well worth the $500
This bike is a beast. Not a fan of the plastic fender light but everything else was great. My rear rack was bent in shipping and Schwinn is sending me a new one. Super cool bike.
A beautiful bicycle. Kinda expensive but it is worth it to me.
Good quality and definitely a neck breaker. Always wanted a Phantom and this repop is great. It's not an original or as detailed and the 1995 repop but that's okay because I don't plan on saving it away. I'm actually out riding this bad boy.
