    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Did you mean for this thread to be in the Beach Cruiser forum, instead of the Alt-Bike forum? You can ask the mods to move it.

    My only fat tire bike is my Giant Stiletto chopper.

    built up and hop on rideable right now maybe 2-3.

    needing a seat or handlebars or air in tires or something maybe add another 2-4 (kinda blurs bettween this first and second category).

    frames and stuff in various phases of build, i don't know.

    Well they're not bikes if they're not built. That's like saying I have a car when all you have is a chassis.

    three, hoping for four.

    it all started with a scwhinn windwood, which was stock for a few years, then a cheap springer front and now going bomber style. It is my loaner bike for friends and out of town guests.

    2010 Felt from New Belgium Brewing, huge rack up front, will probably trade it this summer for a different NBB cruiser, or lose the rack.


    wallgoose beasty, now that I have the cargo basket on front this has become the favorite beer fetcher.

    I have three other bikes in rideable condition, my commuter sees about 50% of all my miles. A fargo that sees long rides on weekends and a path racer built out of old and new parts that may or may not see much action in the coming year.If I could only have one bike it would be the fargo, but if I could have only two the second one would be a beach cruiser.

    I've always like the look of the 2010 Felt from New Belgium Brewing bike. What don't you like about it? I own a 2011 Felt from New Belgium Brewing cruiser that I really like. But it have the rack in back not in front.

    Handlebars are too low and too short for the heavy rack making the steering twitchy and the position a bit uncomfortable for me, which is why the 2011s have the longer bars.

    I don't have a stable. Otherwise it's still Tempest and Germaine.

    Mystery late model torqouis cruiser that had Chung Zhou brand flame tires and color matched hand grenade valve stem caos.

    2012 Diamondback Drifter 1 undergoing a wierd transformation in to I dont know yet.

    1937 Schwinn Henderson will be rat roded. not sure how fast I will be able to ride it though, has a very large crank and original skip-tooth chain.
    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    Two for me, one for the girl in my life. Although I really don't care to include one of my bikes because it seems to be an el-cheapo rig.

    Sounds like a Nirve.

    I'd love that Henderson if I ever had that kind of bread...if you're gonna rat it, why not go whole hog and make it a motorbike?

    If you want to ride it, switch the handlebars. If you want to show it, leave it alone and otherwise keep the old ones for if you do sell.

    you think the torqouis one sounds like a nirve? I think I have a thread on it. it has a black seat post and had the sandard beach cruisr bars in black. rims were also olor matched with black spokes. it has a cantilevered frame like say a schwinn sante fe II. steel and light.

    the hendersin was left at a bus stop with a broken handlebar stem. it's also stuck in the head tube. Iit broke in half between the qjuilll screw and handlebar. I dont want a motor on it, it's going to be painted slightly with a front wheel swap

    A matched pair of Firmstrong 26", a Schwinn cantilever frame BMX cruiser from 1980, a Giant Vida, a Madwagon step thru, a generic cantilever cruiser, a random ladies cruiser, and our latest, a quad bike named Betsy, built from a pair of 24" Huffy cruisers

    I guess that makes 8.

    3 right now, I guess. a Worksman with big whitewalls, an OCC with a 130/90 r16 on the back(got some plans for that one, soon as i get some time to work), and a second stock OCC. I reckon they fit the question.
