02nd March 1947 ()
This Beautiful 1947 Schwinn B-6 was one of Schwinn’s Top of the Line Bicycles with All the Bells and Whistles. The B-6 is considered a Lesser model than the Popular Schwinn Phantom, but in many cases Now Considered More Desirable. The Extensive beautiful Paint Work proves More Appealing than the Chrome features of the Phantom. The B-6 is one of my Favorite Antique Bicycles and Schwinn’s Incredible Style, Beauty, and Quality makes my decision a No Brainer.
This 1947 Schwinn B-6 bicycle is restored 100% and has all the Deluxe Features complimented by the Beautiful Paint. The B-6 has a Fore Brake and Script lever, S-2 Chrome Rims, Arnold Schwinn Springer and a Working Locking Fork to Lock the Wheel in Place like a Motorcycle, the Cycle Lock was a Deluxe Feature on Top of the Line Schwinn Bicycles. This Schwinn B-6 has Big Ballooner Duck Tail Fenders, Double Striped with a Train Light, Horn Tank, 6 Hole Rack, Phantom Chain Guard, Deluxe Messenger Seat with Crash Rails, AS Crank, AS razor stem, Phantom Chain Ring, Sprag Kickstand, Script Seat Post and Schwinn grips. This is a Full-Size Men’s adult Ballooner Bicycle with NOS Original Schwinn Typhoon Cord 26″x 2.125″ Black Wall Tires.
