This is a very nice, all original Schwinn Panther in the striking color combination of red and maroon with a white pinstripe. The blackwall Schwinn Typhoon Cord tires really look good on this bike.
The Schwinn Panther was the next model down from the Phantom. Featuring chrome fenders, Delta Rocket-Ray headlight, a “9-hole” rack, and springer fork, these were still very deluxe bicycles that any child would have been proud to own. The pedals and seat appear to have been changed on this bike, but otherwise it looks as it would have from the factory.
