    Got this from a guys that used to have a bunch of stingrays and wanted a female Apple Krate to accompany his male. Since the female version doesnt exist he made his own out of a Fairlady. He really had to customize the frame to make it work with all the male parts. All the parts are from 66-68. I am going to swap most of the parts out to upgrade my 68 apple krate and then sell the parts i dont need. Got a mint light and speedo with the deal too! :D

    Do those springer forks really work, or are they just for show?

    That is actually really nice, a lot of guys would have wished if they had those to buy cheap like they do for every other girls bike to use as parts.


    Very Unique and I am surprised it's not in a museum of what could have been but never happened, It should be called a Strawberry Krate.
