    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 .

    ..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.
