A most unusual bicycle! The frame looks to have a lot of forged parts. I've never seen a bike built like it before.

I have a decent eye for these things, I guess... cool to know about the lugs. Too bad you won't get your rust fix from that frame, @rustjunkie !

That, it is. FWIW, the ol' Monarks are the only aluminum frames that have any legit cruiser-cred, in my view. I'm sure some of those components will get rusty for ya.
