    Wow, those are great fenders. Are they Electra's fenders? I saw an Electra model with fenders (A Coaster?) at my LBS, but I think the frame design stands out much better with the fenders off. But, as noted, I am sure I would change my mind after riding through a puddle.

    Two years ago I found an old Schwinn cruiser, almost complete, in a second hand shop. I believe it was from the 1950's. I should have bought it. One of my many "one that got away" stories!

    Thanks for the pictures!

    I have his and hers Townies 21D We've had them for about four years. This is the bike that ruined me! I built bikes for ten years. After I bought these, I decided I can't build a better, more comfortable, bike than this....Haven't built a bike in over two years. After seeing your Cruiser, I may have to consider one of those.

    Electra Cruiser

    The Townie was my first crank forward bike, no joke I went straight to the LBS and bought the Cruiser1. I still want a Townie but I'm good with the Cruiser for now. The fenders were from Amazon.com nothing special but already sold. This is how it is now...

    Great looking bike! I love the headlight as it reminds of the older style lights Schwinn sold in the 1970's!
