1980 Cook Bros. Racing Cruiser 26

1980 Cook Bros. Racing Cruiser 26

Lefty's super-fly chrome sidekick.

Serial # 428, exact year unknown I found the frame and fork on ebay in 2006, the seller and first owner claiming it had never been built or ridden. This is my seventh Cook (only one is gone) and the build was determined after I won the set of Phil Wood track hubs, and I decided to go fairly well full-on with super nice chrome and silver parts. The rear hub is a fixed/free flip-flop, so I had to put the fixed cog on there just to be "complete". The bike is a great ride that wheelies like a dream right out of the gate. The build: Cook Bros. frame and fork - chrome Mongoose Kos Kruiser bars Ame Tri grips - black, Profile inverted quill stem - silver Chris King Grip-nut headset - silver Paul "Canti-levers" - silver/black Odyssey Pitbull brakes. F/R Nokon cable housing Shimano Dura ace top tube cable guides Profile bmx cranks - 180 mm Profile Evolution bottom bracket Profile Fireball sprocket - 42t silver Redline sealed bearing pedals SRAM PC-1 chain Phil Wood high flange track hubs fix/free flip-flop DT stainless steel double-butted spokes Mavic 721 rims Shimano 17t freewheel 17t track cog Continental Town & Country tires Redline chain tensioners DiaCompe MX hinged seatpost clamp Chrome layback seatpost Selle Italia Flite saddle (changed from Brooks)
