    Good new cruisers under $200

    Imo it's the frame that makes the bike...everything else can be replaced. I have two bikes, one is a aluminum frame schwinn ruler and the other steel frame huffy cranebrook. They are both made in china but the welds on the schwinn seem a lot nicer and cleaner than on the huffy. Also another...

    Little love from Vegas

    Yeah I have the same frame, it's pretty cool, it has a short seat tube which gives it a low look. I bought mine at Costco in 2007. Kinda miss the stock look of it...nice bikes!

    Wide-large-fat-big momma tire

    Now how wide were you thinking? If you're going for an old school style boardtrack racer design you obviously don't to go too wide. What wheel diameter are you going to use?

    Springer not fitting

    Is that a 1" or 1 1/8" tube? I got a 1 1/8" tube I took off my schwinn I no longer need....should be the correct height too.

    Well after a few years of "mild" abuse the stock springer forks finally gave in...among with a couple other parts. Instead of replacing them with the same stock parts I decided to beef the bike up a lil to better accomidate my style of riding. Before: After: This is just a mock up... but...
