Wow very well done, really like the color scheme..
Remember the Alamo!! isn't that a brand of beer?
Good looking Beer rescue unit for sure!!
think we need to organize a Firemans Cruizer cruise sometime, I want to come down and see you all sometime! and rescue a few beers myself.
thanks for posting this incredible bike!

a few more pics...the drive train on this bike is super smooth and the chain alignment is perfect which makes for a whisper quiet ride

Pretty Close to a Smokey and the Bandit tribute bike, loving the black and gold look!

Re: 2012 Firemans Texas Cruzer 26

Nice job James.  The seat fits perfectly on that build!  That is my aim with my custom seats - the perfect finishing touch - and I do think we have that here.   Can't wait to see your next build.

Re: 2012 Firemans Texas Cruzer 26

Is there any room for a bigger tire in the rear?  It looks like the 1.95 fills out the chain stays when the wheel is slammed forward.  I'm building a FTC now and shopping around tire sizes, I want to run the wheel all the way forward. Thanks

BTW sweet ride I dig your style

i would say no more room for me but like you said i have the wheel all the forward...but for you.....mount any size tire, adjust for clearance then make you chain to fit.   reverse engineer it.
