    I am a retired educator and just got back to bicycling last fall. I have a repro Schwinn Deluxe 7 Cruiser and a few other bikes in the garage. I just picked up a red Huffy Good Vibrations to go with the blue ladies Good Vibrations that I had aquired earlier. I also have an 80s Schwinn Cruiser, and I'm getting a Murray Monteray in a few days. I guess it's true that a guy can't have too many bikes. My son and I are enjoying the hunt for old cruisers to add to the corral.

    This is my fleet so far.
    This 80s Schwinn Cruiser is my project bike. I plan on putting an 80cc motor, a springer fork, and fenders on it. I'm not sure about the paint job, though. It's original, but I'm thinking of classic Schwinn red and black. I never was a fan of pink.

    This Huffy is going to stay as is. It rides great and reminds me of bikes I had when I was a kid.

    I got this lady's Huffy for $40.00 with the owner's manual still wrapped around the frame. The vinyl Persons seat looks nice, but it's kind of slippery though.

    Just picked up the Monterey last week. I think this will be my clunker.

    This is my Caddilac. It's a Schwinn Cruiser Deluxe 7 with an internal 7 speed by Shimano and an awesome springer fork that makes it ride like a dream. It is all original with the exception of a Persons leather saddle and Persons pedals. The bullet grips are also add ons.

    This is my wife's Electra Townie. We picked it up in like new condition for $75.00. We added fenders and a luggage rack.[​IMG]

    welcome!

    i have both of those huffy good vibrations also.

    the saddles are great candidates for recovering.

    check out my post about it with a step by step how to.
