    Wow amazing builds , from the plain to the radical . Definitely what i have in mind for my 1st. build a Klunker !
    Trying to talk my buddy at the bike shop to cut loose with an old Schwinn frame - but its like pulling teeth . lol . He actually tried to talk me into a new school frame for COST but NO ill keep looking . Nothing like the Old Old School i personally think . And it'll be a loaner for when my dad comes up to visite us from Houston . It would even be awesome if i can find a 1944 and dedicate the build to him since thats the yr. he was born .
    Parts i have so far are - I know its all bmx and im on a budget but its a start .
    Old school bmx cruiser bars / AME grips
    Double clamp stem
    Sugino 1pc cranks / spyder and 52T ring
    Rattraps - HTI
    Akisu fork
    Araya 7Xs laced to SUNTOUR sealed bearing hubs and numerous freewheels
    DiaCompe MX brakes / levers

    Well ill keep you guys posted when and if i find a frame to start the build .

    Made some changes on my orange bike( now Klunker style meets Bobber ).

    Before & After pic's. P.S. still need to have the new 26in front wheel powtercoated to match the rear.

    ..where'd you get the bars on the first bike pictured?

    ...and is the Klunkers movie available on you-tube...or where can I get it?

    these klunkers are the best!
    thanks.
