    Always nice when the frame is not the most valuable/desirable part of a Cook Bros cruiser.

    My Latest Klunker Build

    Used the paint templates off of Ebay. Had some problems but I think it looks good from a distance. Went with Sugino 1 piece cranks and sealed BB.

    Problems?
    It looks sweet from here?
    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.....

    Found this Western Flyer frame in a collapsed barn. Built it into a commuter bike for NYC back in the 80s. Hence the narrow bars for tight traffic and the portage strap for walkups.

    Sorry about the fuzz. Took it with my phone.

    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    Probably just cruise with the current gear ratio but I will probably throw on a 5 speed rear and a derailleur in the spring.

    That thing looks bullet proof with those lugs. Probably make a nice klunker.

    52 Schwinn

    Built in 07. Sold to my best bud last year. It's now turning heads up in Steamboat and is used as his daily commuter. That thing carved turns like a GS ski. I miss it but I have a few more in the works.

    Finally finished this Beast.

    Not a mountain bike I know, but definitely a cruiser (although it is built with 700c velocity blunts).



    Cheers!

    That one is a beauty.

    Is that the same rusted looking hulk of a bike that you posted further up? If so, you got skills.

    Yeah, It's the same bike. Unfortunately, they're not so much skills as an awful lot of patience. This was the first time I'd ever attempted a two-tone paint scheme and I chose a frame that was solid but pretty pitted. There was a lot of trial and error involved.

    Thanks again!
