Just drove 740 miles for this Laguna cruiser....

I woke up yesterday around 5AM to get the coffee percolatin' and check emails. I find a PM waiting for me from a fella named Jay in Australia that basically says, "Hey Ryan, since you're into cruisers check out this link...". It's an ad posted the night before for a Laguna cruiser and a phone number.

Next thing I know I'm driving 6 hours to Modesto, CA to pick up this heap. What can I say...the price was right...

4130 Laguna frame
Rear hub dated 12/79.....front dated 12/80
B.S. stamped Dirt Skirt
Persons seat

Seat post is stuck. I hit some of the surface rust on the Cook Bros fork with some 0000 steel wool and it shined up like new.

Stoked!

I don't even know what I'm looking at but something tells me it is Super Cool!

That's a long drive, but if "the price was right", then I'd say it was worth it.

Re: Just drove 740 miles for this Laguna cruiser....

I'd have walked that distance for that bike.  Well, walked only one way.  The other way I would have cruised in style.  Helluva find!
