1978 Mega California Custom Cruiser 26

This is an extremely rare Mega California Custom Cruiser. The one and only one in the museum. This has horizontal bmx dropouts and is a 3 bar 26 inch cruiser.

This bike has the looks of an S&S or a Laguna, but its not. It has a tail block and a bent center bar unlike the S&S and the Laguna. Look at the differences in the link i post to the flicker link.

  I received this bike in a trade from my friend for my older kastan i had, the frame and fork. He found this bike in a garage clean out with tons of other old type of balloon cruiser bikes. This was the one he said that had the full bmx style look with the big horizontal drop outs and the original drilled brake bridge for a caliper style brake.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

I notice you dont have any recent pictures of the 3 bar Mega cruiser, lets see some more photos.
Here's a picture of the frame as found, you can just make out the drilled brake bridge.

I havent found the right font yet, but eventually we'll make some new stickers,
looks close, but simpler than this:
