    My Ruff E-Cruiser build

    If you run into any issues (like the circle clip popping off the rear sprocket) just let me know. I have learned a trick or two.

    Robocop (1987) is so close to my heart I can't bear to watch the remake, but I do love some Michael Keaton. The wheels are both 26" x 80mm.

    Thanks. Alpkit made a great custom bag and it was the least expensive custom bag I could find. Once they had my template, I had the bag here from the UK in a little over a week. I was very pleased. Their custom bags start at under $100.
