    Check this guy out. He has some new take-off cruiser seats, chainrings, handlebars, and stems removed from bikes when he does Polo Bike conversions. Prices are reasonable. Also new complete Polo Bikes. He is updating his site to show pictures of the take-off handlebars and stems. Also check out the links to Bicycle Polo which is an international sport. Thanks!!!

    Re: parts and supplies

    I can't recommend lovelylowrider.com or bicycledesigner.com. I just posted my experience with them here:

    I have bought quite a bit from Battleaxe, they always shipped right on time, and well packed. I would recomend them.

    The new Project 346 website is on line. But the most important, the Basman has landed in Canada/US. A small selection of 346 parts and the Basman frame are now available across the pond without the extreme high shippingcosts from Europe to US or vice versa. Check the special e shops for US and Canada on http://www.project346.nl.

    hey all ...
    locolowriders has been the only 'specialist' store in australia let alone melbourne for coming on 10 years :)
    although we have basic lowriders and beach cruisers in the shopfront, we do have a lot of 2nd hand bits for that collector that asks;)

    i have a shed full of the old/rusty parts
    and love building up the old,raty,rustic,crapy bikes we all know and love!!!

    http://www.myspace.com/locolowriders is the easiest way to find us ... woot
    keep it up all

    Most of the local shops in my area are all about spandex and road bikes--I get dirty looks when I pull up with my muddy schwinn (no joke). So, I tend to order online. I had a pretty mediocre experience with lovelylowriders and found their parts to be pretty cheap-O. I've had a couple good experiences with electra bike. I will say that I've learned a lot from Sheldon Brown's articles. He was a bike fanatic and loved modifying old bikes. His shop is called Harris Cyclery and they're out on the east coast--West Newton, MA. Quality parts and knowledgeable people. Brown past away last year, but there are a ton of articles up on the site.

    If anyone is looking for some fairly custom parts like leaf spring forks, drop seat post, or board track inspired specialized parts.. we either have them, can make them, or or in the process of building them. We specialize in motorized bicycles but they use the same parts as most cruisers. Send me an email if you've got a idea or are looking for something you can't build or find.

    Here's a look at our board track drop seat post ... more here: http://www.ghentcruisers.com/our-parts/drop-seat-post

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I have been working to open accounts with suppliers for my shop. I have been able to get one opened at the same place that "lovelylowrider, choppersus, and battleaxe" buys theirs. I saw a post about J&B importers too. I have one with them too plus some others. So what does this mean for all of you? I can save you all some money. The only issue is that I do not have much inventory yet so if there is something you need, I would have to order it. Most items come in a day or two except for the lowrider and chopper stuff. They come from California and I am in Pennsylvania, so it can take up to a week to get here.

    If you are not in a hurry, I should be able to save you about 20%. As I see what people are interested in, I will stock more so it will then be faster.

    Let me know if there is anything you are interested in.

    Thanks!

    I hate dragging up old posts but I thought I'd share my brief experience with these folks.
    It took 12 days before they shipped my stuff, I had to ask them for a tracking number. Stuff came today. Pedals almost slipped out of package thru holes created by handlebars.
    Sent me 3/32" chain instead of 1/8", they don't even list that size chain.
    Gotta' say I'm dissapointed.
    And they wouln't be getting any more of my money.
