    Cruiser #2 well on its way...

    Dad's bike is taking form quickly. Still got a chainguard, seat, and some other bits to get finished, but this should give you the idea. He was quite excited to see it today.

    Now I know where to go for help when I start my cruiser project. First I need a house and a garage but it will happen some day. I am sure you and your Dad will have many great rides together. Enjoy the bikes.

    Man, those old forks look good. They are wiggly, though.

    Another nice rig!

    I love the paint you chose for both cruisers, they're each very nice looking. Did you have them powder-coated or wet-painted? I might get my old Mongoose repainted sometime, and I'm looking for ideas.

    Thanks

    I also thought that the paint turned out quite well on these bikes. They were both done by me in my backyard with automotive primer and paint. The key to a good job is just being meticulous about the little things. If you want the whole process, PM me and I will help you out.

    And hey, if anyone is interested, I will be working on a Schwinn cruiser next and it needs a good home.
