I like the Next La Jolla from walmart myself
A La Jolla or a Cranbrook is probably the perfect bike for this challenge
So how do we get this started? Start a poll to see who'd be in?
It might be a good one for the winter build off.
I have a crusty Nel Lusso that I would be in with.
I think the upcoming WBO is spoken for but we might be able to get it in somewhere as it's own division or class...
Looks like ....'s is clearing out some of their "Columbia" bikes for half price.... They're kinda ugly but maybe have some potential!?
Columbia Adult Superb Beach Cruiser $189
Columbia Adult 1952 Deluxe Beach Cruiser Bike $175
I used the big box 1952 Columbia for a recient build off. I only used the frame, tank and head set. I made a single speed monster cross gravel grinder. I had a blast building it, gravel racing it (70 miles) and single track. It made a real nice and different klunker. I used 700c wheels, with 40mm tires, drop bars with MAFAC canti brakes. A lot of different bikes can be made from big box bikes.
Yeah I wouldn't even feel a twitch of guilt cutting one of those up.
I’d buy the red one to a new springer fork for $175
