Hey Clunker,
Nice build.  Been looking for one of those double diamond frames for awhile.  Have a friend that kind of owes me one but figured he wouldn't be able to find one.  So far I was right.

Thanks for the kind words. The '35 is a tough frame to find but they do turn up now and again. Keep an eye out on the Cabe.

Cool bars!  I find 28" to be comfortable for my shoulder width and 30" works for me, too.  I have one motorcycle at 31" and it makes for tight lane splitting.  Cool shop you have.  If I ever need a vice I know who to ask!

Re: 26" Cal Custom Cruisers and Strandies...ONLY!

NOT SURE if i'm klunking it out or making it back in to a beach cruiser.
found the Schwinn at a local swap meet . got it for the killer price of $30.00
needs some love just not sure how I want to build it up. hmm 5 speed, single speed coaster, drum brakes or caliper, stock forks or  BMX style?

Saw one of these Avenger bikes in person for the first time yesterday.  It was a dark metallic blue.  Pretty cool bike.  My wife saw me looking at it and said one thing.  "No".
