Turning a Mongoose Juneau into a crusier?

Would the Mongoose Juneau make a good cruiser with some ape hangers and a fat seat?

Was going to order a Sikk bike but they never have them in stock.

What you think?

I say yes, but I'm no cruiser purist. pretty much if I cruise on it, it's a cruiser. i'll be doing the same sooner or later, with a dk duke. a bigger saddle and bars with more pullback (even eyeing a fat springer fork on ebay), and it'll be my fat cruiser.

From the picture is appears to be a fat tire bike to me but you can call it what you want if it makes you happy. Roger

It's starting.

Going to add some Ape Hangers to this thing.

Should I remove the Mongoose stickers?

I'd suggest a shorter stem too.
And taking a sander to the tires to remove most of the knob height.
