    That is a very nicely done ride. You aced that one, it looks sweet. The original rat fink does nothing for me, but this version is rockin.

    I hope you're kidding. I'd love to have that older style frame Relic to go along with mine. 8)

    Newsflash: apparently the importer for the Benelux (that's Belgium, Netherlands & Luxembourg) has been cut off from Electra. Don't know any more details, but it is quite a nuisance for parts now over here. I ordered a few parts 3 months ago, and finally know why they have not been received. If anybody can shed some light on this, please enlighten me. I just hope somebody else will step in this marketgap, but who knows, in this age of credit-crunch...worst thing is, the importstorage was around the corner from where I work...there goes my short-cut ! I just wish they let me know earlier, instead of keeping me in the dark...

    I'm at work at the moment so can only access my Ghostrider, but the 24" rims on that Electra are 36,5 mm outside width.

    Never seen that one before, kinda reminds me of a Felt Chief - classic look for a new bike though, I like it 8)
    It's a shame white or cream tires get dirty so easily in our climate, as I dig them more and more.

    Has anyone tried to peel the graphics off of one of these?
    I'm specifically interested in whether the 8-ball would come off the side of the Straight 8...

    The decals on my Streamride were under a layer of clear-coat. I stripped my frame bare so I wasn't concerned.

    Yeah, I figured that would be the case on a glossy paint job, but am wondering about the matte finish.

    My guess is you'd get a permanent ghost image from the sticker after removal. If it were me I'd do some poking around on line before I started peeling decals off a frame.

    My wife Ronnie's new Amsterdam Balloon, just picked up on Saturday:

    Absolutely beautiful bike. It's actually a metalflake cherry colour (looks kind of orange-y here), wheels painted to match with a cream pinstripe around the rim.

    8-spd., leather saddle and grips, drum brakes that work like they're operated on a line of silk, rides like a dream, and she's never been more comfortable on a bike. She is one happy camper!
