"maxima cruiser platinum" - what is this bike??

I found this cool bike at a local thrift tore yesterday - it has a springer front fork, mono-shock in rear, wire wheels, white wall tires & what looks like a tank. It has CRUISER on the tank (only 1 side; the other side is missing, and it looks like it was just a sticker) and MAXIMA & PLATINUM on the frame.
A very cool looking bike - And I can't find another one like it to compare it with!

Is this some handmade bike? Has anyone seen one before & can you tell me a little about it?

Sorry there's only 1 photo; my camera died right after I got one photo!

I appreciate any help.

Graphics don't look particularly custom ... any other info on the frame anywhere (I mean, names or numbers on the frame.) I googled it and would have to go for about three pages to get beyond Nissan Maxima, so I quit.

I think it is somebody's creation. The fork, wheels, and bars all belong on different and separately styled bikes.

I don't think it's a frankenbike. I think it came, as is, from China. It's truly awful, keep shopping.
