26" BMX Cruiser Thread- Let's see 'em

I haven't seen a 26" BMX Cruiser thread in a while.  Here is my current and most complete 26"- a Schwinn King Sting.  My other 26" Cruisers are all in different stages of repair/rebuild/restore.  Bring them out for the winter!!

Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!

Cool Laguna.  I never knew they came with a chainguard (I noted the tab on the rear triangle).

Re: 26" BMX Cruiser Thread- Let's see 'em

My two 26's - got these both after could not settle on just one bike after making mistake of letting my '09 OM go to DEACON:

2010 Haro Steel Reserve 1.3 DJ - 4130 Frame

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b136/Minx20/tn_IMAG0074.jpg

2010 Haro Railer SS - 6061 Frame

Don't have a real pic of this bike yet, but it is the absolute nicest riding 26" I have ever had for the money besides my old OM. Combines old school with some new school goodies like disc brake, cass rear hub etc.

Here is mine

My brother has a Laguna just like that, but it is white.  We couldn't find any info on it, so it is cool to know there is another one out there.


Looking for a KOS Kruiser frame & fork or complete

Re: 26" BMX Cruiser Thread- Let's see 'em

Something a little different:

'97 KHS Fleetwood:

Aluminum frame, 1-1/8" threadless headset, euro BB; chrome SE Landing Gear forks.
26" Araya 7X in gold, Suzue front hub, Shimano coaster brake rear hub cruiser wheels straight from the 80's; Kenda K-52 skinwalls
SR Sakae 170mm cranks; SR Sakae BMX chain ring
Snap stem; GT Cruiser bars; brown ODI Rogue grips w gold collars; brown Animal bar ends
brown SDG Bel-Air RL saddle; Redline laid-back seat post; Hope seat post clamp

Not finished yet.  Debating whether to use the original Nexus 7-speed hub & some other little changes.

I have also had 3 additional Kos Kruisers, all of which have been sold, 2 Kos framesets,a 26" GT frameset,a Gary Littlejohn 26" and recently picked up an MCS Magna Cruise.

Re: 26" BMX Cruiser Thread- Let's see 'em

Here is my semi finished Champion, I have the SE pads on right now till I get the Champion pads and will make a few changes in the next month or so.

I believe it is an 82, bought disc, sprocket, and brakes from PorkChop. The rest from a local shop here in Fort Collins, Flight Cranks, Gooseneck, Chain, Tires. Then the Wheels came off my OM Flyer.
