Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Thanks to numerous hours spent on this site and seeing all the killer stuff you guys build I figured I would give it a shot.
Started out with A Hunter beach cruiser I bought on CL for $3.50 and a junker Roadmaster that also came from CL.
made a little jig and cut them apart
And now its one piece again. Quick mock up, now time to clean the welds sand blast the frame and make it move under peddle power!!!
Thanks for looking.

Wow Thanks a lot for the kind words. I did a full mock up today stole the bars off my Del Mar and went for a ride....It is a lot faster than I thought it would be.
I still have some welds to clean and some more parts coming for it. I really wanted to take it for a spin!!!
How was the handling? Ok? Despite the ape? Sorry,bad joke. But I've got abit of an ape-trauma,caused by one of my former Harley's.
What I mean is: did you produce a straight frame?
Btw,what's the story on the Tiki-guy on the left? Did you cut it yourself? It's cool.
It tracks nice and straight.....I dont think the apes are staying I'm 6ft and I am stretched out. As far as the Tiki goes they are all over my yard around 10 of them all carved by friends of mine, plus a full Hawaiian Tiki bar out back. Hot Rods, Tikis, surfing and Bikes are a few of the things I love.
I need some help with the handlebars. I took the bars from my Dyno Glide I think they look pretty cool but does anyone make a set that are longer and more swept back?
Also what do ya'll think about the fenders?
