Kustom Coaster III started out as a 2005 GT Kustom Kruiser "Glide" frame, chainguard, fork and crank. It is wearing it's third color of paint. From Purple to Green, to Flat Soft Iron, Yellow Green and Aged Copper and it gained faux doors and springers in being borm again. It is composed of new and old parts, some of which have been repurposed. Propulsion supplied via Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub with 21T cog and heavy duty BMX chain to stock GT chainring and crank. The KC III theme idea originated by finding the "door Handles" in Hobby Lobby. They generated the idea for door panels which evolved rom having flames to the present graphic logo. No real buisness on this end, just too many bikes. The bike addiction started in 1995.

Hey thanks for looking and especially to those leaving all the previous positive comments. The bike was a fun build and rides well even for this old guy.

That's slick. I like the copper work. What panniers are those?
The panniers were a last minute find at a swap meet last Sunday in KC. Got them for a fraction of the cost of those available on eBay. You can search for "Swiss Army Ammo Bag." Their will be several vendors.
