    Here's a rare one... (mert lawill content)

    A friend owns this beauty: an original (except for that biopace ring) Lawill Pro Cruiser. Drum brakes. This bike is SO much fun to ride around.

    Is that a thumb shifter? I can't tell?

    It is a thumb shifter and it says 'fingertip EM' on it. The lever itself is embossed with 'EM.' I don't know who made it, but it operates a shimano 600 rear derailleur (with a 5 speed freewheel), all friction, of course.

    The angles are slack, the bars 32" wide with about 15 degrees of sweep, and it's just about the most comfortable bike I've ever experienced. If I had the money, I'd take it from him, but....

    For as much as this design works, it works great. The airdamper is very harsh and needs a lot of effort to break loose. So it's not a very comfy ride. No problem for me, since I prefer rigid forks anyway

    I am seriously overthinking of selling the fork. It's fine in all ways, but I have too many old stuff around and have set my eyes upon a new project which will cost a lot of $$$... I like old stuff, have enough, but never enough... Still I think I got to clean out some stuff, incl. this Lawwill, since I won't ride it that often anyways...
