I put Hundreds and Hundreds of miles on this bike before I knew any better. 3.50 at the thriftstore it was my gateway drug.

Currently remaking into a Sunday bike!

I've had this together for about a year now. What was suposed to be just swaping one frame for a larger one turned into a complete rebuild. I had an old cruiser that was too small for me so I tried to just put all of the old parts onto another larger frame. Well the parts ended up on my wife's bike and I found a bunch more parts for this one.
I added brackets for the generator and chainguard. The cabling is routed through the TT and the rack has a custom mounting plate welded to the frame so it mounts with no extra hardware. Dispite all of the extras the overall bike cleaned up a ton with the custom mounts eliminating the need for weird clamps and brackets for each accessory.
I painted it myself and got some retro decals for it. The dart on the TT was done by hand and then I did an enamal clear over it. Because of which it has slightly yellowed, it really makes people think "How old is that bike?"
It's truly something different to ride!
I will admit the crate idea I got from someone else. 5-31-2012
