Schwinn Panther

We walked into this little restaurant yesterday and this classic, original Schwinn Panther is displayed on the wall.

So many people have come into the shop with an old cruiser with a Schwinn headbadge and think they have something like this, even the ones that don't actually have a Schwinn headbadge! "Well my partner told me he heard of someone with this bike and they sold it for a hunnit thousand dollas!" I'm serious! Then I have to tell them that the Roadmaster in their hands isn't worth a hundred pennies and if they restored it it would be worth less than the parts and labor it cost to do the job.

Also, it's pronounced like win with a sh on the front; not shwine and there is not a single r in the word. Serious, again.

BTDubs, we're not in Florida.
