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

Dammit I want a coasterbrake bike.


This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My signature, without me, is useless. Without my signature, I am useless.

Would love to acquire a Sunn B-Mix 26.

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

Someone was going to throw away this frame. Figure I’d put these parts on it to help it move around better in the backyard. Definitely fugly but I think it could clean up

A bicycle is like a toothbrush; you should have one and use it often.

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

Finally found my fave cruiser saddle: NOS Brooks "Narrow" from the 1970s.

I dig these because of the old school badges, the copper rivets, and because they have a more BMX shape to them compared to the oft used B72 (and B17 classic). Pretty light, too! (My previous titanium Brooks weighed just 60 grams less).https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/242634/20200918_1704585f657d6a21.jpg

This Original chrome low serial Dubbed The Dead Head came across path. I have the original sales paperwork and a couple of other cool things. Just got done building it. I will change a couple of parts but for now she rolls like this.
OG Cook frame fork double clamp and bars in original finish.

That's about as close to perfect as you're going to get.

One thing that I love about all these old cruisers is they get ridden - even the uber collectible $15K+ ones!


Looking for:
Oakley .5 grips in black
Gold Ano Nitto SX stem

Holy shit man. Badass. I think I know the previous owner. Dude’s got some seriously sick bikes.

Solid score, Sam! Congrats!
