My guess is it is a pretty modern bike in a vintage style. Based on the style of fork, stem and saddle.

Also, is the fork backwards? I thought the dropout should be in front on that style fork.

Probably made for BodyGlove to use in stores etc as a prop and then sold, etc. Fork does appear to be backwards to me as well. Could also be a generic beach cruiser that someone stuck some BodyGlove stickers on.

It may be all academic as I have sold it..

the Body Glove logo etc.. were actually screened on ( not a sticker )
I hated to let it go but I had a woman call who had purchased a caloi beach cruiser from me
and needed a bike for her husband..

They're happy and I'm happy..

Just picked up a woman's earth cruiser and it's almost identical setup so maybe same manufacturer..

thanks for all the input and not sure about the fork setup.. but you might be correct..
however it matches the earth cruiser setup..

Then both are backward.
