    $50...if you include shipping

    That's what I'm in so far on this ratty thing. I can't keep my son away from it.

    I like it, especially like the frame style. Happen to know the make/model of the frame?

    It's just a Murray cruiser. I picked it up for 10 bucks at a thrift shop, added a set of ape hangers, a pair of grips, and I'm good to go. The back wheel is still warped, because I'm too lazy to really dig in and true it up completely, but I think that lends to the character of the bike. Totally on the cheap.

    Here's my bike, about $60 including cone wrench and grease for the coaster brake

    Wald basket
    Wald #870 bars
    Hunt Wilde Grips
    Dupli-Color Desert Vinyl and Fabric Color from the auto parts store
    Bike is a Huffy Mission Bay cruiser from about 2001 I think

    It's an absolute blast to ride!

    I've added a laid back seat post cut from the old handle bars. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    Nice cruiser hailukah. I like where you store your lock and chain when it is not in use, lol. If I am on my cruiser and I need my cable lock with me it is looped up and hanging on my arm.

    This one was about a hundred bucks all in;



    Would have been about twice that if I had to pay for the powdercoat. Most of the cost was the springer fork and space apes.

    Thanks e-Man. Your black cruiser, the one with the new tail light, look real sweet. I saw a pic of that bike in another thread and it's what got me to decide on the handle bars. I was thinking of getting some north-road bars and using a taller seat post. The upright riding position is much more comfortable and a lot more fun. It feels good just layin' back and cruiser around the nieghborhood.

    BTW, I'm 6'2 and 240lbs. I filled the seatpost with epoxy in an effort to keep it from bending further under my weight. I've bent larger seatposts. So far there doesn't appear to be any change in it's curve. Anybody tried this before?
