    Oh yeah? What kind of parts does he make? I don’t have Facebook, but I’ll get my wife to go on for me? That’s a good resource to have. Thank you.

    He's been building schwinn based klunkers for a long time...custom hd seatposts and clamps, crossbars and other cool parts...

    I have a few sets of his handlebars. Welds are clean and they are very nicely made.

    No, not yet. But I will definitely check it out. Thank you! Your bike should be there soon. Let me know what you think when it arrives.

    Got my Kenda K-rads today. These are really good looking tires. Got them mounted up to my SE racing wheels tonight and they look killer. Getting a little closer each day. Thank you again for the recommendation on these tires. I love them.

    As a suggestion : B66 Brooks saddle / Ashtabula stem / BMX scrambler bars / one piece crank / if you need gears 5 speed rear with a thumb shifter. My husband who worked at Schwinn (engineering) in the early 80's built up a a few of these while also working on the King Sting. I'll post pictures of the bikes when I get a chance...

    Well, I am still gathering parts. My Brooks cambium seat came last week and it’s awesome. Today I’m waiting on the mail for my sprocket. I’m still in search of a specific chainguard for the bike. It’s the correct one for this year frame. It’s the only thing keeping me from taking the frame to powder coat. So if anyone has one or knows where one is, PLEASE let me know. Below is a pic of the style guard I need. Note the dip under the “R” in Cruiser and the lack of frame overlap in the rear, or wing, as they sometimes call it. Obviously, I don’t care about color or name, I just want a straight one that I can get powder coated. Please let me know if you have one or know someone who does. Thank you.
