OK, show me your cruisers, townies, bar bikes, choppers & rides that make you go Hmmm. I love them. It was a bad day today in Jersey, 'till I stopped thinking about work around 1 PM & started tinkering on an old project ride that never made it past a can of Krylon Duplicolor (spraypaint). Low & behold, I rode to the sweet monster to my local watering hole for happy hour by five o'clock. There just something about building a bike, especially one with character, that makes me feel alright even on a sh-tty Monday in the rain. Here she is, date & manufacturer unkown, but I'd guestimate Cleveland Welding Co. circa 1940 on the frame, flat-blade fork, headset & stem. Everything else came from miscellaneous parts bins, my tire/wheel rack & even a junker that got scrapped at the shore a few weeks back. Sun 36 hole rims, Shimano 1x1 hubs, Dyno Super Slick 26x2.25 rubber, old apehangers, AME' BMX grips I got 20 years ago for a 13th birthday gift (amazing how many bikes they've seen), Redline small block 180s, an Odesey 1pc BB, GT 46 ring, Wellgo 1/2" platforms, no name chain & post and old Rampar springer sddle. Anyway, just therapy for long time cruiser fan you know. Thanks for posting any photos of your cruiser.
