Hi all! 8)
I bought this off of eBay last week looking like this:

After a quick strip down and the clips to the rear brake removed it looked like this:

Then finished off in glossy black, green and cream pin-stripes, green bannana seat and black pedals. etc

I'm quite pleased with the result! I have scored some green iron cross grips and some green "hooters" American casino dice to make some kool valve caps. And so far the build has cost me less than £40!

Seems like another cruising topic on there. Great looking bike!
What would you guys say to have some special section for cruising and strange machines next to BMX and Roadie forums? Huh?

I still have it but I think the green one suits it alot better, if anyone wants the purple seet, they can collect it from the colchester area for 5 pounds (sissy bar included) :D
