    Cruiser frame question
    I have a hang up for the old school cruiser frame look & would love to have one for a mtn bike, only way I could remedy this is to buy a Wally World huffy with an aliminum frame I picked up at a yard sale.

    The thought of having one built crossed my mind but think'n it mite cost way more than I could afford rite now.

    Anyone ever build such a frame that mite offer some food for thought ??

    Or have some pics of yours ??

    Search Cruiser and Retro here on MTBR. Tons of modern interpretations of the style.

    Scroll down to bike brands and find the custom bike builders forum and Retrotec is a sticky!!

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if a wally world huffy is your only means of finding a kroozer frame then having one built custom is definitely going to be out of your price range. Might be able to find a used trek sawyer for a decent price?

    I had assumed the cost would be a serious chunk, I'm not as hard core rider as a lotta guys on here so thers no need for me to drop thousand$ in a bike, but would love to have a chromo steel framed cruiser/mtn bike.

    But thanks for the notice on Trek for an idea, will look into it.

    The KHS and Trek are different animals. One is a cruiser that plays MTB and one is a MTB that plays cruiser.
