1980 Cook Bros. Racing Austin Cruiser 26
Cook Brothers 26 inch Cruiser. , Austin Cruiser, aka Captain America! Welded with gussets below the seat mast for the Austin Cruiser shop back in the day.
This is the same frame and fork that is listed here by Brycycles. I bought it off of him in January of 2007, and slowly amassed parts for the final build in August of 2007.
Aparently the cruiser heads here in Austin were jumping and successfully breaking the traditional Cook Brothers 26's, so CBRmade a handfull of gusseted frames for Lynn carter of the Austin Cruiser shop.
I've been searching for a clean Cook 26 to build for the last 10 years or more. Being from Austin, I was super excited when I saw this frame and fork come up for auction on Ebay. Many thanks to Brycycles for getting the F&F in such good shape. It rides better than I could have ever dreamed.
