2008 Worksman Newsboy Michael Collins Irish Whiskey 26

Black Betty

I took a limited edition Newsboy Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, and converted her into a strandie that happens to be the most comfortable bike I've ever owned.

Super Sweet!!  Mine is definitely my favorite ride.  Sure it's heavy but that just means your getting a better work out! lol

What forks are those? the look suspiciuosly like my KHS'.

Thanks, fellas.  The forks are a mystery to me.  I posted an ID request on the Strandie/Cal Custom thread, but got no response.  Personally, I think they look like they could be Akisu, but I'm definitely not an authority.  Heavy barely begins to describe this bike! lol

Mine are KHS and were chrome as well.. (prolly Akisu)  I'll get a better pic but they look like clones to me...

LOVE this bike!


Raced NBL tracks in the 80's East Coast. Boston is home base. Wide ranging love for all things BMX. I have great memories and continue to make them. Faster than greased moose poop.

Thank you!  I must admit that I'm getting an itch to lose the coaster brakes in favor of a freewheel and caliper combo.  Time and gumption (or lack thereof) will tell...
