This thing is so nice. I honestly wasn’t expecting much. I saw it in a garage sale ad yesterday. I really tried to unsee it, figuring it would be gone quick. I thought it was a laguna, but all I could see was the rear triangle. This morning I figured what the hell and messaged the poster to see if he still had it. Yup. Well damn. Had to drive up to the lake to get it but it was a pleasant surprise. 

 

Scorpion bars 

Araya steel rims

Goodyear tires

Normandy hubs

tourney brakes

all I had to add was a seatpost. They wrecked the original removing it.

Very nice find. I’m still waiting for my turn to come across a cruiser like that. Thanks for sharing.

Such a cool grab man !! A buddy went to a barn sale in the spring and seen this hanging from a  hook the guy wanted $50 for it the guy told him he rode it a few times had a bad crash and broke his arm and hung it up. I bought it from him for a bit more. Planing on tossing a brooks saddle on her and callin it a day lol

That bike is all kinds of rad! I'd be super stoked to come across something like that. The Hank and Frank decal is like the sprinkles on top of the icing on top of the cake! Lucky squirrel!

That. Is. Sweet! And PReston Petty grips! I loved those things. Those and Malcolm Smith were my favorite grips. Always had to buy two pairs for use on the BMXs though...

Killer early MTB / beach cruiser / strandie hybrid. You're keeping it complete, I hope.

Yup. About the only thing I might change is the seat. Duct tape isn't my style lol

This thing is amazing. All I did was air up the tires. Brakes are perfect, gears all work smooth, hubs spin beautifully, headset and BB are smooth. Goodyear tires aren’t even cracking.

Such a killer deal and pick up.  Finds like that are getting harder and harder to come across.
