Just out of curiosity, has anyone got one of the California Cruisers originally built by Recycled Cycles? I thought Leon Dixon had a picture of one on his website, but going back, I can't find it. We need some good pictures to make the family album complete!

I met a guy at the Air Show riding a Phantom that said he still talks to Larry McNealy (?) Recycled Cycles, he has some kind of business in HB, does anybody talk to him. I found this on a BMX site, listed as a 78 Mega California Cruiser

That's a single speed with a rear drum? I've never seen that variation before. Was that from the factory?
I bought the rear drum from a guy in Costa Rica and it came with that sprocket, which I thought was pretty cool I said to myself I'm going to save this sprocket for a deluxe non 5-speed Schwinn.. so that's the bike I put it on.. That's not the drum that it came on so I was curious to see if it fit on another drum and it did

I would save the drum front brake for a single speed that doesn't have a front brake. Unless you just have just have plenty of drum brakes lying around.

I see what you mean, I was actually going to swap out the forks so I don't have that little hole where the original brake goes on top of the wheel.. I have an original set of black Forks so it don't look all funny LOL
