I've had a lot of 26" banana seat bikes. I built this for my wife awhile ago, she hated it. That old aluminum frame had to much flex for her, so it was stripped and the frame sold.

We were spending a few weeks at the beach, and I needed a bike to get around, and not be afraid to leave outside. I took an old frame and some of the parts from my wifes' bike. It was about a 5 minute build, I did this the night before we left. The perfect bike for the beach. Sweet and simple....Probably my all time favorite bike (24" wheel in front).

This bike later became the bike Rats Alt. Steve's pick for the cover of the 2012 RRB calendar.

Mine Lowrider built Dyno Roadster replica had banana for a long time, i'm a tall guy :)

I bought this Firestone Speed Cruiser from an RRB member (CeeBee) with the intention of doing pretty much nothing to it. I haven't changed a thing since...however, I have a box for the parts I've been accumulating for it :confused:. Leave as is? I don't know why I believe me when I tell myself such blatant lies :crazy:!
