i think that is a huge pile of cool. looks awesome.

i had seen similar frames on ebay and considerd a cruiser build but they dont look that great as a frame only. built up it looks fantastic.

loving the bars and grips too. are the bars comfy?

Thanks :D

This is the second one i have built, my brother took a shine to the first one! And now rides it around bury. He uses something called 'gears'on it though!!

I got this one from e-bay 60 quid i think?

The bars are really comfy, i run a pair on the surly but upside down.

Al. :D

The pics are on Penzance prom' with Mounts bay and St Michael mount in the back ground. Oh! and the white wall on the first pic is the Jubilee pool britains oldest lido, i think?

I live a mile over the hill in the background of the third pic.


Al, :D
