Seems like every garage and tag sale in the region has an Orange County from Schwinn, but when I came upon a Huffy WEST COAST Choppers special, in red instead of chrome, complete with the chain guard and dummy tank, I had to have it. Even still has all the decals on the tank and guard, which I'm currently having replaced with airbrushing by an auto painter. Got it cleaned up, replaced the crank with another authentic, cleaned the chrome on the branded main gear and triple tree fork, and even upgraded the rear wheel to a Sturmey Archer 3-speed (preserving the coaster brake).
Then I remembered that I am 5'11" and this is a kiddy bike.
I've got the frame naked now, and thanks to obsessing over a thread on another forum, I've got the general shape of what I've got in store for me. That said, I'd like to make sure this is specced a bit more to my particular height and leg length.
So, other stretch cruiser/lowrider enthusiasts, I am 5'11", with a 32" inseam/leg length. Measuring from your bottom bracket, what are the lengths from there to the top of the seat/saddle, the rear dropouts, and the center of the handlebars? The lengths of your top, down, and bottom tubes could also help.
Thanks for any advice.
