    SE Bikes sells the threadless 1 and 1/8 and they are going to start selling 1 inch threaded ones later this year. Otherwise, you gotta watch Ebay and have your wallet ready.

    Here's one I put together yesterday for my best friend. I'd had this repainted 70's vintage cruiser frame in my garage a couple of years, and wanted it out of the way. It's one I saved from the dumpster at a shop that was going out of business.

    I recycled parts I had hanging around the garage, but opted for a new set of prebuilt Alex cruiser wheels with Nexus 3-speed and alloy rims to save weight (Y303 alloy rims) and add versatility. The tires are from Cheng Shin (CST); they look pretty cool and were dirt cheap (retail ~ $9/ea.). Also picked up a new set of Wald cruiser bars and roving eyeball bell. The grips are kinda bleh... but it's what I had laying around.

    By far the most comfortable bike I own. Wish I could've kept the forged fork and the truss rods but the steerer was bent. Oh well, I will find a replacement eventually.

    It's too bad your before/after pics got split up with that repost.

    Wholly smokes,
    Designer Cruiser. I give up. Awesome- ride, history, and friends.......
    Thanks for posting. I am curious about the ti seatpost. Always thought it would be fun to order a solid length from Titanium Joe to put on a Klunker. Right when you think you are onto something new, you realize it was done already. Sure would like to see more photo's of your bike.
    Thanks for sharing,
    T
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    i bought this bike used, from neil murdoch, in 1980. at 35lbs it was one of the coolest bikes in crested butte. i sold it in '82 for partial downpayment for my cunningham. #7. i was able to buy it back in (maybe) '89. it had been converted to cants with a noname unicrown fork. i HAD to put the type two on it. the only thing i regret is not knowing that i could buy a bmx chris king headset. i had inserts made for a one inch headset, and pressed them in. really no problem. the places i've been, and the things i've seen on this bike, you can only imagine.

    Newbs take note (can we get a sticky on this?). This - right here - is why I tune in, folks!

    A Cooks Bros. cruiser formerly owned by Murdoch/Bannister, customized up the ying-yang with - amongst a bunch of cool stuff - Cunningham modified hubs /roller-cam and a Potts fork... Did OHO build the wheels?

    What will it cost me to get in your will?

    That's a purdy piece right there. The repaint is tasty, and the details match the bits very well.

    What are you using for the front brake torque arm clamp? I like the way it seems to fit the fork diameter, and is mechanically solid; I need one for my DX's TX-1200.

    Thank you sir. Your bike was the inspiration for both of mine.

    It's a MX 1" hinged BMX seatpost clamp (pretty cheap on ebay). I made a spacer out of some stainless tubing and used a longer bolt. I also ground down the OD of a stainless lock washer to drop in the counterbore on the clamp -- the bottom of that bore was chamfered and I wanted to firm up the spot where the tube sits. I obviously also had to drill a hole in the arm on the brake.

    -------------

    edit: Added some better pics of the clamp above.
