    They say this version is supposed to be stronger than the regular Ashtabula ones because of the gusset.

    So that's probably an American Flyer -- no?

    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.....

    Thanks Jeff, the bike is still undergoing few changes. I plan on running front brakes. I am split between Shimano roller brake or SA drum brake. I need some input from few members on which is better.

    Went for a ride on my cruiser today. I've been riding this frame (my favorite bike) since about 1990 when my previous Schwinn Bomber frame was used-up, bent and annealed beyond recognition.
    To answer the question...
    "If you ride a single speed and nobody sees, is it still cool?"
    The answer would be ...YES! Definitely.

    This is a cruiser my buddy built around 30 years ago. It is as he built it except the tires were changed some years ago. From time to time i am tempted to break it down to use some of the parts on other projects but have resisted so far.

    A contribution to my favorite thread. Finally got myself a...Camera. Just had this one redone over the summer with a fresh powder coat to replace the crappy one on it when I bought it. I've actually have had this frame for ten years or so. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it but I found a cheap wheel set at a swap and decided to get her built up. I chose the color to go with the hubs and built it with a bunch of parts I had around. I only had to buy the bars, wheel set, and chain. I've been enjoying the hell out of it.

    I've talked to Paul about the frame and he knew it immediately. He says it was built around '91 or '92 for a shop rat (his words) who then sold it to the guy who I bought it from.
