    They bought Electra so are back in. It's only a matter of time before they eff that up like they did all of the other brands they purchased over the years. Trek is like the General Motors of the bike industry.

    I lost/gained an hour to his genius today... Just when I think the canary in my coal mine is about to go, in comes someone like Odom with the oxygen to keep me drilling down.

    Here's my replacement rig for my old 64 that got nicked from the back of my truck . 1979 Schwinn cruiser frame with laying around bits so it's a nice budget build. Enjoy.

    That looked like fun. Those moments of gravity acceleration - when he just gapped the camera - were especially cool.

    96 Kona A'Ha

    I just finished this 96 Kona A'Ha, what a fun bike. I picked the frame up on ebay and had it powder coated at Groody Brothers.

    Very clean build. I like that your remove all the braze-ons and bosses. Just looking at it brings back memories of riding my BMX bike as a kid. The coaster brake rules.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    I just bolted my cruiser together this past weekend and thought I'd toss it into this thread.

    I started with a Craigslist-sourced 2009 35th-anniversary Redline MX-24. Nice bike but the colors were awful.



    I blew it apart and had the frame and fork stripped and powder coated locally. This color combo, while being iconic for old-school Redline bikes, is a tribute to my Pro-Line. I made custom pads by using inkjet fabric transfers on a new set of blank Flite pads.

    Here it is along with some of the cast off components.











    Think I'll hit the local BMX track with it when it opens in the spring.

    Not sure of the yr of the bike , it's a Schwinn Heavy Duti and the fork is just a new cheap Sunlite 1" fork .

    Nice rehab work there! Your checkered forks remind me of when I painted red checkers on the rear triangle of my Pro-Line in the mid-80s. Love it!

    Didn't really know that , thanks for the info . I don't do any stunts or wheelies so I should be ok . I do have an older Akusi fork but didn't wasn't to cut the steer tube since it's about 7-8" long .
