For 41 years, from 1938 to 1978, the Schwinn Bicycle Company of Chicago offered a unique but little-known line of specially constructed lightweight bicycles: The fillet-brazed chrome-molybdenum models, which were tucked into Schwinn's model lineup between the lugged Paramount and flash-welded models like the Varsity and Continental.Until the recent rise of quality TIG-welded and composite bicycle frames, most high quality lightweight bicycles used lugs (external metal sleeve fittings) to join their frame tubing.The extra thickness of the fillet also provides strength, and its smooth contour distributes stresses evenly.(For additional strength Schwinn also brazed steel sleeves into the interior of its frame tubes at the joints.) Fillet-brazed bicycle frames are strong and have a neat and clean appearance, but they are uncommon because of the additional craftsmanship required.Below you will find images and what Schwinn said about the Phantom in their catalogs year by year... *Sturdiest construction,patented cantilever frame *Schwinn quality fittings and equipment throughout *finished in sparkling colors and chrome trimmings *Fully protected by the Famous Schwinn Guarantee You've never seen such a bike!
