1979 Laguna Cruiser 26

1979 Laguna Cruiser 26

3-bar classic Laguna BMX cruiser

Early 1979 26" Laguna frame (no gusset under downtube/headtube junction), Gary Littlejohn forks, 26" Araya 7c's, DiaCompe brake & lever, Sugino star & chainwheel, 1-pc. Sugino 178 cranks, Brooks saddle, Redline Brute stem, VDC bars, rat-trap pedals...
Built in 2008 to look like it was built in about 1980.
Found the F/F, wheels, cranks, post built up with a whole bunch of random parts on CL.  Scored it dirt-cheap because it didn't "run".  Scrounged & traded for the rest of the parts over about 6 mo.  Fun to ride.

Thanks guys big_smile  Its funny - it wasn't until after seeing these photos that I tilted the bars back a little.  I knew something felt off, but seeing it on here told me what it was...
