Re: 26" Cal Custom Cruisers and Strandies...ONLY!

Here's one I've been working on... a 96 Murray USA cruiser/klunker.  Still got more to do, but have a look -


Before - a US made 6 speed beach cruiser in very good original condition (local CL find - cheap!)

Work in progress... converting to BMX cruiser / hybrid klunker duty

That rear brake mounting hardware (that uses the hole meant for the attaching the fender) is cool too.  Haven't seen that before.

Re: 26" Cal Custom Cruisers and Strandies...ONLY!

Went to Seaside Oregon the other day and brought my bike. Here it is at the Necanicum estuary natural history park. I was riding beach bomber single track style. A little loose in spots but rode most on the trail.
