I like that a lot

never made a cruiser, but after seeing that maybe I will give one a go.

Oh my God, seems like I started the revolution
:shock: :D
At the end of a day, MTB started from cruisers, as they say :-)
Yes, Boneville Salt Flats machines were sort of inspiration for this one.

Originally it came with non triple rigid fork and upside down bar, which was obviously much more comfortable + some plastic red seat - now replaced by russian leather one. Triple fork allows to set any height of front end you wish :-)

:shock:

That sure is cool as funk 8)

I remember an mtb built with non shimano parts in Bike magazin from early 90ties... It was a commercial or something... Looked awesome!

I think a lot of brushed alu parts would give it a lot...

More better pictures please :D
