there was a sticker on the bike that read http://www.madwagon.com. when i bought this bike it was set up like a mountain bike from the factory. i have seen 2 other Madwagon bikes, one was a mountain bike, the other was a cruiser.

Wow, looking good.

I figured when you hacked off the brake mounts (which you made clean!) you'd get rid of the cable guides... you have plans for them?

I'm enjoying your build! I have a Madwagon, cruiser with a shimano Nexus 7 speed . They were a mountain bike company that morphed into building retro looking cruisers, and then went out of business. I'm a big fan of their frames!

it finally stoped raining enough to get outside. i did some wet sanding, and some more primering. if all goes well it should be in paint by Friday. wish me luck. (i need to practice my grinding skills)
