    The lime green rims are sweet.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Got to dig up a book on macrame, too.

    I like the skulls on the bar ends, too! Actually, I like the gold trim combined with the lime green rims. Very nice colour combination.

    Did you buy those wheels like that or did you paint them yourself. I just picked up a cruiser I'm looking to fix up and the wheels are so rusty I'm not sure they're worth rehabing. Know any places that sell red wheelsets like that?

    Great looking bikes! Customizing has come a long way, back in the early '70s my brother and I used to find junk bikes, hacksaw off the front forks, and hammer them into the ends of Stingray forks to make a chopper bike! I especially lik e the black cruiser with the portholes, it reminds me of an old Harley-Davidson back when they were nearly bicycle frames with engines.

    2 more kustoms

    My bobber bike, both lights are wired to a hidden battery and switch under the seat.








    and here is one im still working on, I raked the neck just a bit to lower it with out using a bent springer. I have a 3 speed hub on the way, and am building a tall suicide shifter for it. that seat is going to be gone soon as well, just tossed it on there for a test ride.

    Sweet Customs! Here's one of my custom SpaceLiners, I call DevilWing:

    "Rullende Torden" (norwegian for "rolling thunder")

    I like taking pictures of bikes almost as much as I like riding them.

    My Micargi Tahiti NX3 beach cruiser came with a wheel set like that. They might sell wheel sets. I had to peel the swirly palm tree stickers off of it. I'm planning on getting a red chain, an iron cross chainring and some DK iron cross pedals. I'm looking for chrome capped grips that will work with my shifter and cost less than $20.



    Is that a Bamboo covered frame or a Bamboo frame. Is it called the 'Bambruiser'?
