I have always been intrigued with klunkers and early Mountainbikes. While researching my DX klunker build, it became apparent to me how much influence the BMX cruisers had on the early MTB scene. As I completed the DX project, I knew I needed to find my own Cruiser project to take on. With the addition of a der hanger, cable stops, bottle mount, and a bash guard to This classic Champion frame, it was converted from BMX use to MTB many years ago. The frame and an old picture of the bike in it's original glory taken may years ago gave me a foundation to begin this build.
In the parts gathering stage now, things are slow going as I try to match parts to the old photograph, or at least keep things close and era correct.
So far I have gathered (all subject to change):
Champion Double downtube frame.
Cook Bros. Fork
Cook Bros Seatpost.
S/A front and rear drum hubs
Ukai silver rims
Magura brake levers
Sugino 3 piece BMX cranks
Pro Neck Chainring
Suntour Winner 6 speed freewheel
Suntour seat clamp
Oakley 3 grips
KKT Lightning pedals
Still have a long ways to go, but figured I would start a thread now.
