    Oh so sweet--the only things original are the frame and fork. It went from Nexus 7 to SRAM Auto 2 (coaster), but seriously, what more do you need at the beach, and who wants to bother with shifting with a drink in your hand?

    Needs a cup holder. My last one had a nice cup holder... but somebody took that cruiser from me.

    There's no way I'd fit on a 25 inch frame either. I've been meaning to ask, how are you healing up?

    Oh, just fine. The doctor said absolutely no weight bearing or lifting with that arm for 6 weeks though, so riding is out for the rest of this month.

    When I ride that bike with a group, people think I'm riding a Tall Bike, but now, just a diamond frame and I'm sitting straight up.

    Technically, my Next is a BCSO (Beach Cruiser Shaped Object) since I believe it was originally sold at Costco or something. What the hell, at least it's at the beach. Anyway, a very cheap impulse buy in newish condition at a moving sale.

    Anybody know about the 3-speed, coaster-brake Sturmey Archer AWC (II) on this thing? Is it just a cheap, crappy hub or is my problem the shifter? It shifts up in the gears quite easily, but it takes a MIGHTY twist of the grip shift to get this thing to go back down to 2nd or first gear.

    Here's my Electra Sunny Garcia with 7-speed Nexus hub. The seat is low because my wife and I share it.

    The SW is a good hub. Hard to diagnose over the Internet. Post the problem in the Bicycle Mechanics forum, lotta good knowledge floating about there.

    I'm thinking about getting the same hub for my Schwinn Continental. Will follow the issue with interest.

    Two cruisers that I found in the alley.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Both are cheap piles, but they worked adequately. The bottom one is a Micargi. Needed two tires and a flat black spraycan paint job. The Firmstrong only needed a back tire & the rear hub cleaned, greased and adjusted.

    Crap, but loveable crap. Both bikes have found new owners.

    Those are some really sweet bikes. This is my wifes Schwinn Windwood. It's only important to me because it ultimately got me into cycling. She had this for a year before I bought a bike and started riding with her. As someone else said, I have not been able to talk her out of the SS and coaster brake! She loves it.

    Yesterdays ride was about a 12 mile cruise. Mostly along the water:



    1941 Schwinn DX and a 1979 Champion Double down tube cruiser.
    We had fun

    Sanctuary.jpg

    Not a very good pic, but here's my Schwinn Sanctuary parked in the workshop behind my office. I brought it to the office so I could cruise around on lunch hour during the days when I brought lunch to work. Avenir Cruiser Saddle + Tektro front brake + Wald rack + Electra Ape Hangers have made it a very different bike from how it began.

    I've considered going back to the old bars and lowering its profile a little...she could definitely stand to look a little more sleek. Also thought about commuting on her as soon as I add a SA 3-speed IGH.

    1950 Schwinn with a bunch of repro crap attached;

    This is how it came to me, sort of a Repack Hill style thing. I loved it but I couldn't help but add stuff to it. Sort of a compulsion;

    '64 Typhoon "path racer";

    Lousy POS Murry that followed me home. Actually sold it to an off Broadway show. I guess it's famous now. Wish I could remember the name of the play. Blue somethingorother. About WWI I think.

    Not my picture but goddammed georgious in my humble opinion;

    My Roadmasters;

    Here's the fat one. You'll have to look elsewhere for the skinny one;

    My wife's new Columbia. The ad didn't say anything about it being a 24"er. I was sorta surprised when it showed up. Oh well, I guess that's why I married a short one;

    This was fun but I liked my Schwinn better so I sold it;

    I'll dig up more later. This is a good start.
    I have spoken.

    This is a gorgeous collection! Does your significant other object to your collection? I've got about 10 bikes (some of them stripped to only frames), and my fiancé puts up with it rather well; I'm always curious as to how other collectors keep their hobby strong.
    Ride what you like, how you like.
