Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter
You're in the wrong forum.
This was never a beach cruiser. It's a hand built steel (or maybe Titanium) race bike designed to be evocative of the classic cantilever frame bikes
of American manufacture.
I believe (very vague memory) that the builder is one of the guys from Portland OR, but that's just the vaguest of memories from having seen it or one like it at a hand built bike show. Since I've probably seen more hand builts in Philadelphia, there's a good chance the builder was from that area.
You might repost in the C & V forum, or look up photos from the North American hand built bicycle show.
