Looks pretty shiny for a beach cruiser. It doesn't look like there's any rust.

That's 'cause its not your typical beach cruiser. ;)

I am not sure what year make or model this is. The logo is beaten and the only clue is the unique frame design and firestone chain guard.

I just started to restore a 1959 Schwinn Hollywood. Hoping it won't take too long to finish. Will post pics of completed bike.

Here's my Raleigh Retroglide NX Seven. I haven't been able to determine the year. It has a 7 speed Nexus hub and it was a CL find for under a hundred. It's a good ride for the 5 min. commute to work. It's not that I'm covering 5 miles in 5 minutes on it, though.

i have that same bike, or close. it's a retroglide, but has a 7sp derailleur instead. cut and stretched like i like 'em, hopefully on it's way to being sort of a mutant stretch cruiser/cargo bike

Sorry but this bike does not follow a classic cruiser design so it can't be a true cruiser.

However, this bike is a very nice, very modern mountain bike design.

I posted a pic of my Schwinn cruiser at the beginning of the thread, but that was before she was decked out with a basket, rearview mirror, cyclocomputer, and of course, pink skull bell!

My wife's Electra Amsterdam 3i....the most comfortable bike I've ridden!

The Worksman cruiser. It now has baskets front and rear instead of the rack, and has different handlebars.

I no longer have this bike- stolen up in Denton. It was a Schwinn Heavy Duty, made in Taiwan, used in chemical plants. I bought it down in the Houston area for $60, re-trued the non-original wheels enough that it was rideable, and otherwise left it alone. It had lots of character, in a chemical-plant way.

Uhhhhh, says you! BTW the bikes 15 years old and that makes it not to modern. Thanks for the kind words though! :)

Ok, one more and I'll stop...I swear. :)

I couldn't stand the stock bars on my Sanctuary...ended up going back with Ape Hangers, only this time, no front brake.

I think I'm done tinkering with it for now...and yes, I know my chain is slack. :lol:

One of the hardest things about a restore is finding the original factory decals.
