Worksman Classic Cruisers

Anybody here have one? I spent years riding one of their industrial tricycles in the GM plant I worked at. I really liked that old trike and with solid rubber tires it never got a flat. Well I'm planning on getting a cruiser and somehow I got to the Worksman web site and lo & behold they make a cruiser with all the neat options like springer front suspension, big drum front brake, whitewall balloon tires and a retro cruiser rear rack. I went to the build sheet and put together a pretty nice bike for about $750 not bad for made in New York USA. See links and feel free to comment or post pics if you have one.

Worksmans have been discussed in the Utility Cycling forum quite a bit. IIRC the springer fork is not made by Worksman but is a pretty cheap aftermarket item that is not too satisfactory. You might ask about it over there.

I ride a Worksman cruiser- somewhere on here, I have a write-up on it.

At the time I bought mine, you could get the basic "industrial" model a little cheaper than you could get the customized cruiser with those exact same options- so that's what I did.

Which rear end did you order on yours 1, 3, or the 7 speed?
