    You gotta watch plus my 1st Klunker

    So I saw this video last year and ever since I have been on the lookout for a BMX cruiser.
    Will, I built this up last week and love it!
    It is a old Boeing Worksman that I built up with Redline bars, Cook cranks, coaster wheels and Brooks B17.
    I am going to change it up some but it rides sooooo nice. Heavy but smooth.
    Watch this video, you won't be disappointed. These trails are about 1.5 hours north of Seattle and are fantastic.

    Awesome bike and really great video. Those guys could-would give the originals a run for their money. A great blend of old school and new school.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    I have ridden those trails on my 6" travel Scott Genius and my hard tail 29er and I must say that watching those guys take some of the hits on a 35-40lb bike is pretty amazing.
    They had a "Klunker" style race up there this past year as well.
    There is a video of it out there someplace but I can't find it.

    It was on there when I bought the frame and I could use the Redline bars I had so it stayed.
    I have ordered a new Stem and more cruiser friendly bars so it will get replaced.
    I am also replacing the black Cooks with polished Toplines that have a red spider.
    The seat post will be chrome or a old school fluted anodized red one.
    Right now the post is a old handlebar that had been cut.
    I also have some more cruiser style tires on the way.

    That's some impressive riding in that video, especially since those bikes probably have almost nothing in common with the bikes those guys normally ride. Though I think the modern tires and pedals were cheating.
    That dog was damn fast too.

    Dragging this thread back out because I just saw the sequel to the video in the OP.
