    26" BMX Cruiser, anyone?

    I've been busy lately, and picked up a ton of new bikes, like an old aluminum Supercaliber, an old Apex, a Mt. Fuji, and that SR Explorer that I thought was interesting (but nobody else did... Anyone? SR Explorer MTB...

    I also just picked up a 24" Kastan cruiser, and this- a S&S 26" BMX Cruiser. It's got a looptail frame, gold ano parts (that are pretty faded), and it's all original, as far as I can tell, except for the seat and tires, which I switched. It's smooth, and super fun to ride. I plan on using it tonight for Bars on Bikes. Here are some photos:

    The old BMX stuff is fantastic. Here's a 1979ish OM flyer I built up a few years back using mostly NOS parts.

    Nice.

    Sweet! Here is my 81 GT 26 I am working on. I call it Frankenstien, since it was repaired back in the day, and somebody kept welding mods on it. I cut of some crooked canti posts and some crazy braces in the middle. CBR stem, GT cruiser bars, Son Lite Turbo hubs.

    BMX guys - diggin the bikes! I am building up an early 80s Fat Chance trials bikes. From the catalog, it seems that the bike was built with a Suntour seat collar.

    Is there a standard size for a BMX/cruiser seat collar?

    Well, since we're posting our Cruzers, here's my Firemans Texas Cruzer. This is my favorite bike I've ever had.

    You have to love the Ye Olde OMs. Looks great.

    I have my old 80's Mongoose in the survivor category now.
    Still in good condition but needs clean up.

    .. Sigh ..

    Ooh so nice!

    Wow, looking at these bikes always reminds me as a kid in the late 70's and 80's thumbing through BMX Action Magazine and going down to the LBS wishing for one of those bikes. Lots of nice bikes here! Though it does make me feel old now!

    Yeah! Yeah! Post pics of your A'Ha!

    I wonder why my close up pics look so out of focus. Yours are so crystal clear. What's your secret to such precision close up pics on bikes?

    Is 7/8" the seat post size or the seat tube size? Should the collar be a 1" to fit a 1" seat tube or does the collar size reflect the seat post size? There always seems to be different methods to sizing collars - like quill type stems seem to be both 7/8" (actual size of quill) and 1" (size of steerer tube).
