    Ahhh thanks. I knew the title was worded strangely and I couldn't remember what to search for.

    ^ And no helmet! Why to go! One, "klunker" to the head and it's a done deal. Can you put the klunker in your trust for me, I'll take great care of if.

    Now, this is where he comes back with some lame excuse.

    Look at all the pics of GF, C. Kelly, A. Bonds and all those guys "back in the day"

    BMX'ers sometimes wore goofy equestrian or football helmets then, sometimes not.

    Re: The Cruiser Thread

    Got this on ebay for a klunker project. Now that I have it put together & got to ride it I think Ill leave it alone for awhile. It may be the coolest thing I've ever owned.

    Somwhere around 1940 Sun Racer. Rear wheel is not original. Shame 'cause I love the patina on the white front wheel.



    Here's a brighter picture

    Wow- that Sun Racer is great! That looks like a blast to ride.

    Here is an old S&S Newport I picked up.

    Very cool! Never seen an S&S with canti-mounts before.

    The fork looks like a 7/8" Bassett or Cal Cruiser, definitely not an S&S.

    Only until I klunkerize it. That front ring is steel and nearly 1/4" thick. Really makes you appreciate modern alloys!

    I weighed the rear wheel and tire. Nearly 9 lbs. By comparison my 29er Flow wheel with a 2.4 Specialized Purgatory is less than 4 lbs.

    Thanks, Don Cook out of Crested Butte built the bike up around 1980 and he welded on the der hanger so I guess it's likely he welded on the brake bosses as well. I appreciate the info on the fork, I wasn't sure what it was. It has odd boss placements on the lower inside of both legs.

    while this bike was built and inspired by don cook, all the wheelsmithing, brazing and such at the time was being done by mike rust. he's the guy who inspired all of us C.B.ers in the early eighties. in many ways still ahead of his time. R.I.P.

    Thanks for that, it's a great name to know and I've found some good information. Don said he thought that either Steve or him did the work, did Mike work with them often from what you know?

    absolutely. mike was very enthusiastic and gave his time and talent fairly freely. his money job was wrenching for neil murdoch at bicycles etc. but only for a couple of years. he moved into a shop in salida with don mclung and produced "the shorty", which was the first elevated chainstay bike i know of, and a line of custom highwheelers.
