    If you lived closer, I could've hooked you up last week. Oh well.

    On Richmond, VA craigslist I've seen a few coaster brake equipped 26" cruisers come and got for $20-$30 over the past few weeks, that's worth the wheelset in my opionion.

    Hey Nick can you put the rear tire on the busted up wheel, just for looks. Bike has a REAL nice stance to it, would really like to see it with a rear tire on.... Or SWAP out a rim from one of your other bikes. :wink:

    Bikes looking real darn good. Waiting to see what Red/White/Blue design you do on that tank.?.?
    Just a suggestion look up the Star Design they had for the 1976 Bi-Centennial Celebration...
    That on a white background might look good.?.?

    EDIT: So I figured why be lazy, I found an example myself.
    Here it is....
