The Schwinn Panther III
The Schwinn Panther gets its third makeover, it still looks visually very much like the Panther II. The fenders are now chrome, but the bike is still available in 2 speed, 3 speed, or coaster. The Panther Three was only made for two years, 1961 and 1962. It is a very nice bike and a great find because of the rare half tank and twin headlights. I recently sold those headlights alone for over 300 dollars.
