    That thing is sweet. Who did the powder coat? What color was it originally?

    Thanks. I bought it with a terrible powder coat on it and rode it like that for a bit then put it in storage and more or less forgot about it. If you know old BMWs, think malaga but much less attractive. It was really poorly done, was super uneven with bubbles, very uneven color, one side of the gusset was thick enough that it was almost flush while the other was normal. It had a few bubbles, the BB threads had to be chased and the seat tube needed to be reamed to get a post in.

    I had it redone at Electro Tech Powder Coating in San Marcos, CA. They only charged $85 to strip and coat it. They didn't have much of a selection of colors at that price but I liked this one well enough. I would go back there in a second. I've heard that they do the powder work for cycleart. I'm pretty sure they do the Texas Fireman's Cruisers as well since they are welded across the street.

    What a great idea!

    My Dyno has been in the garage for years waiting on the right project. This could very well be it.

    Would you mind sharing some details?

    Nice build. It would take it over the edge if you got the bars and XTR arms coated the same color!

    Here's a couple action shots from the last Coaster Brake Challenge. Cruisers are a mainstay in this event.

    A last minute Derby/Bomb got called for last weekend. There were a few more old cruisers also but they did make it in this pic,
    and a couple of grease dripping, red hot smoking hubs too.
    Thanks to CP for rallying the guys.

    Happy Easter:

    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.....

    Good job! Out of the Parts Bin

    Built this for my Sweetheart yesterday to Derby next week. The newest manufactured parts are the jump bike tires.
    Rolls well.

    My latest cruiser. I have a two speed Sturmey-Archer hub on it that makes light trail use possible. Fun!
