All-righty then, I get to post another 1st!!? I almost did not want to post this bike, as it is probably too blingy for this bunch, but, there are no other mid school cruisers yet, so I thought "what the hell"! This frame set is made by the same guy who made my 1978 Champion, (see comparrison photo next to my 78 Squareback) which is really why I built this bike. Its like the big brother, with the same squareback as my 78" This also has a 22.5" top tube. Making it a great rider. And my longest bike ever!!! This bike was made to kill the eyeballs of anyone who dares to look at it in the sun, ouch!!! When I found it, the chrome was trashed, it had a million tiny dings on it, like someone had a padlock on it, loose, and it bounced around all over, for years. It took alot of smoothing and metal polishing to make it look like this.
