1981 Cook Bros. Racing Cruiser 24
Extremily rare Cruiser Team Issue
I picked this up a few months ago and the guy I bought it from said it is a Team Issue Cruiser. It has a 4 inch headtube( all Cook Bros. 24 Cruisers have a 5 inch headtube) an integrated seatpost clamp, integrated chain adjusters that are on their 20 inch bikes but not their 24's and a large 26.4 seatpost tube. I have not seen another one in all my years of riding and collecting. I built it up for the Summer build off but it didn't place. Parts are Cook Bros. chromoly frame and fork, stamped stainless steel Mongoose Kos Cruiser bars, red Oakley B-2 grips with blue donuts, blue NOS Hatta alloy headset, red NOS SST Dirtskirt, Cook Bros slant stem with blue clamps, red NOS Cycle Pro Shotgun seat, Sugino 26.4 seatpost, blue Diacomp MX 900 rear brake with NOS red Dia Comp Tech III brake lever, first gen Mathauser finned brake pads with NOS red Skyway fins as a spacer, first gen Cook Bros dogbone cranks with red NOS Tuf neck 39 tooth chainring, Cook Bros. sealed bottom bracket, NOS first gen Bullseye pedals with blue bodies, NOS blue Araya 7x hoops with Cook Bros sealed hubs, ss double butted spokes with red Araya nipples, Suntour 15 tooth freewheel, red NOS Mitsuboshi yellow lable Comp III fat/skinny tires and original Cook Bros. padset. Out of the twenty plus Cruisers I own it is my second favorite, DG 26 looptail is still my favorite! Thanks for checking it out!!
