2013 Santa Barbara Cruisers 26

2013 Santa Barbara Cruisers 26

Handmade in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara Cruiser frame #13. I had the frame painted gloss black by ex Flat Track racer Pat Hawley using old school PPG Acrylic Enamel.

Rex at Santa Barbara Cruisers is a meticulous cat, which no doubt, is the reason this frame rides so nice and straight. I ordered my frame November 2012, at the time Rex had just taken a deposit for frame #10 which meant my name was on #11 but after a few minutes I changed my mind and told him I wanted #13. Frame #13 got started during a transitional faze while Rex was getting materials from a different supplier so this frame is mild steel with a 4130 chromoly BB shell. I knew I didn't want to cover the nice welds with thick powdercoat so I tracked down some old school single stage acrylic enamel paint. This frame has a life of chips, scuffs, and natural patina ahead of it. The decals for the Santa Barbara Cruisers are still in the works...

Cool bike!  Hard not to love a three bar.  Dig the pedals too.  Had a set of those on my RRS.
