i have my eye on an older shwinn crusier that i saw at auction preview today. i know some of you, including rody, have made decent commuter bikes from them. one thing ive been wondering about is the cranks. the ones ive seen have large bb shells with single piece cranks. i imagine replacing that would be a good idea. any idea what parts i will need or what will fit?

The majority (but not all) use BMX size and style bottom brackets, so any bmx 1 or 3 piece should fit. You can also use a converter such as the DMR wondercups http://www.dmrbikes.com/?Section=products&pageType=item&category=8&CategoryName=Frame%20Parts&itemid=FPWCUP and then use "normal" mtb bootom bracket and crank units.
