I finished my cruiser. Alittle over cast today so you can't see the flakes in the clear coat.

Very nice looking but is that go-cup holder vintage? . Perfect for riding around the campground. I am in search of something like that now.

Eddie,

Awesome ride. :thumbsup:

I enjoy the way the old classics handle when you ride them. I have a 1940 Swiss Condor myself.

OK, you got me -- I was exaggerating just a bit to make him feel good :lol:
Still -- You wouldn't want to take the PeeWeemobile out on a gravel road, so you got him on off-roading capability! :lol:

You don't have to make me feel good. Riding a vintage bike is a good feeling. I like riding it better than my mountain bike or my 7 speed Dahon fold up. And the compliments from other riders that pull up next to me are plentyfull. I sold my other mountain bike and the 12 speed road bike. The road bikes are nice for distance and speed but I got tired of being hunched over all the time and always had my head down watching the road. That's when I bought the mountain bikes. Besides most of my riding is flat ground. When I go to the mountains I take the mountian bike.

no doubt for commuting -- especially on the flat around town, them wider tires are nice. :thumbsup:
