1982 Cook Bros. Racing Cruiser 26

Crumley: I built it, sold it, bought it.

I custom built this bike for a customer out of the Austin Cruzer Shop and almost 30 years later I bought it back. It was basically a survivor, with a few minor changes when I got ahold of it. The wheels, drivetrain and brakes have now been replaced.

Build highlights:

That's a beauty!big_smile


Always looking for Cook Bros. stuff, vintage SE stuff,  MCS 6 bolt Super stems,  and Race Inc. Leading Edge/Cycle Pro/BMX innovations 20" forks.  All NOS or in very nice condition.

Amazing bike and even more amazing story.  Wheelieman...I had no idea that you were connected to the Austin Cruzur Shop.  That is really neat.  I would love to someday own an OG Austin Cruzur...amazing history.  Thanks for posting!
