Chill Cruiser Cush

Here at BCC we love shreddin' up some singletrack, leaping cyclocross barriers and grinding away asphalt climbs...but we also know that there is a time to chill and just cruise around on two wheels. Below is my beloved "Star Cruiser" (named for the OEM chainring). Originally, this cruiser was a circa 1960s AMF, fitted with fenders, rack, chainguard and lots of rust.


Before (Circa 2004)

Now the "Star Cruiser" has entered its new life, undergoing a complete makeover. The AMF was stripped and a new seat tube (Columbus FOCO) was welded in and the entire frame was repainted. The frame and chainring are the only original parts remaining. The "Star Cruiser" is equipped with a retro 1999 Rolf Dolomite mountain bike front wheel, Dyno Fireball balloon tires, a rigid triple clamp cruiser fork and a cush cush cush flame embroidered cruiser saddle.


After (Present Day 2009)

I really like the old fenders and chain guard. Any chance you can put those back on, or were they trashed?

they are at my folks house in alabama in a box. pretty rusty. fenders won't work with the balloon tires, but the chainguard might.
