My Gawd that is so bad asss.  I thought that the XL24 was cool.  Your bike is so much nicer.  I had Laserlite BITD so I reallycool like this bike.  Great, oh well.  One more bike on the grail list.  I'm so envious.


Cool, a new bike.  Wait a minute.......where am I going to hide this one.  She's going to catch me...

Nice Kuwahara 24! Great riding cruisers!

I own a black one, and I really enjoy the ride. By the way, the forks are Kuwahara 24 forks. The leg tubes are larger diameter than TRX's, and have slightly different dropouts.

Nice! They look so much better in chrome with black. I wish mine was.

Mine is here: http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~axsyscnc/P … 0-%204.JPG

It now has black pads, Suntour XCII's and an Elina Aero Turbo saddle.

Love em to pieces, nice rig.

I've got a black one, similar to Mcam, I've also nearly finished a chrome one as well, should be a looker. They are sweet to ride.
