Arnold from S&M contacted me to see if there was enough interest they would make a limited run of the custom cruiser bars they did for me. Obviously USA made, at the S&M facility, .090" wall thickness, chromoly, 32.5" wide , 6.25" height, 12 degrees upsweep(about 2"), 20 degrees of pull back (about 3"). These are my measurements I took of the bars after I received them. My bars came bare steel and I had them chrome plated, but they will be offering them in chrome. Price will be $60.00, and if enough interest he might be able to lower the cost a little more.

Okay, Arnold and the crew at S&M are pretty stoked there is interest in these bars. Please e-mail Arnold directly, Arnold@thebuildingdistro.com, reference S&M S.A.C Bars. With the interest between here and Rat Rod Bikes, they are thinking they might run a few more than originally were thinking.

The men’s were the same, the Boss looks pretty rad when they’re tweaked a bit more bmx. I found this Boss a couple years ago.

That's Coffey Park, just past the fence. The fire was right there, to the fence, and it jumped the street in a few places. Crazy.

Good to see you back, Aaron, and good to see that you saved your bikes.  Is that a Lepper seat on the Worksman?

I'm not sure, I don't think it's anything special. That one was as low-dollar as I could make it. That seat came from a local bike co-op where I pick up used parts sometimes, It was so dirty it was black with dirt and mold, but some saddle soap and some leather polish and it cleaned up nicely for that bike. I'd be surprised if I have $150 into that bike, and the bars were about $50. People really dig it when I have it out. It's certainly cool. I thought about resto-modding the frame, taking off the tabs and stuff, but I just cant mess up the finish.

Good stuff.  Thats the cool thing about old carbon steel cruisers — they’re cheap, plentiful, and built to last.  As far as the seat goes, they are comfortable as F**K.  Way to resurrect that sucker!
