NICE!! Looks like an older 20" frame Worksman cycle bike!! They are built heavy like a tank!!

Love the headlight.

I saw that one, too.... over on RRB. I got a few INBs; always toyed with getting a m2600 as well.

Lucky score, there, mostly b/c yours has got the much nicer lugged-crown fork. Definitely much nicer looking than the monstrous unicrown forks worksman has been putting on their 26" bikes more recently. It's got a shorter atc, too, which gives the bikes a more aggressive-looking stance, imo.

Ya gotta love those Wald #40 flashlight clips. I have three (or is it 4?) for my bikes so far.
Super nice retro bike.
What does it say on the head badge?

That's a worksman m2600, Bro.

Yeah, what he ^^^^ said. I tossed the whole 26" BMX idea out the window. Heres what she looks like today.

No sir, 26 in wheels with a frame that will more than likely measure out to around 53-54cm.

Worksman markets the m2600 as a 20" (seat-tube, center-to-center), with the more common INB model being sold as an 18"

Scroll about halfway down for your bike.

A shame you ditched the BMX idea; that looks to be an Akisu fork on there. :thumb: I have an INB built up BMX-ish; it's a lot of fun to ride.

surreal 12-05-13 08:14 PM

PS- looks good now, too. I like the black crank with the chrome (zinc?) Wald sprocket...

Thanks man! BTW, the crank isn't black, it just has great "patina." (code name for surface rust) but your right on with the Wald (chrome) sprocket. You have a good eye! Heres a slightly better pic.

I'm thinking only the top one is the "top" tube... that other guy is the "mid-tube"....:lol:

Thanks! Truth be told, anyone could tell that's a Wald sprocket.... but I'm prolly the only guy on bikeforums who knows that's an Akisu fork on your m2600....

Good luck with the light. Have you updated the internals, or are you just gonna rock it b/c it looks cool?
