As so it begins...

Following the build [ well, light customising,really] of a cruiser bike recently, I've decided they are so cool to ride I need one!

So far I've bagged this.....

Image

err...this....

Image

...will be definitely adding these....

Image

and one of these.....

Image

and probably quite controversially mounting it on.....

Image

This might get painted satin black though. I wanted a Thomson layback but these are cheap and sooo retro. Hopefully the 80's shape saddle will hide the separate seat clamp that's required.

Keeping with the controversial theme, this is the crank I'm thinking of....

Image

Oh, I've also bagged a Kona jump fork which goes with the Scab frame, and have black rims in mind if poss. (Considering the chrome seatpost, maybe get those cranks in silver instead, and get silver/alloy rims, but the bars are black so...???)

Opinions chaps.... :D

Just waiting on goodies to roll on in....

I'm picturing a sort of WW2 colour scheme of sorts. Still considering a Brooks (and if so, a tatty old leather saddle bag on it too) but the Charge Bucket may suit the bmx post better??

I'm going to have to put all my ingrained weight weenie consciousness behind me and hide the scales. This things going to be very gravity friendly!!
