A klunker you say? Just about any frame from the 30's to 60's.

You're welcome.

I am working on a 1951 Schwinn Straightbar frame. I think it would make a great Klunker. I am not going that route, but it did occur to me while looking for parts to go on it. The rear spacing is pretty narrow, so if you go the multi-speed route, it will need substantial frame widening.

I am doing something like this (without the red tires.)

I saw the tightest single speed fat tire old school cruiser last night.. and it was a girl riding it. not sure the frame but it had super fat white tires and one of those low old style drop bars (like a city bike bar but upside down)

i love the look of classic cruisers-turned klunker.. wonder which are the lightest frames
