    Nice! You got a build thread for that? Specs? Part list? Pics?

    No build thread but I have a few pics. in my album. A friend of mine built a small batch of these frames around 2000. SE wheels, Kenda Komfort tires, Sugino "Snowflake" chaining. Schwinn "Peaked" forged crank, Persons "Track Racer" saddle, Dyno "24" Cruiser" bars, Dia Compe brake, and a few smalls. It was a relatively inexpensive build but it turned out clean and kind of timeless. Thanks!

    Super fun ride. I guess its not a "build" but I saw the picture so I added it.

    Mean Streak. Started out as a couple of ten speeds chopped up into tubing. Then built into Long BMX. Then restyled and rewelded into Mean Streak masquerading as a muscle bike. Today it finally was finished as a 26" skinny tire cruiser.

    Probably not the BMX styling most are expecting to see on a cruiser. Instead of building a BMX from a cruiser, I turned it around and built a cruiser from a BMX build. It can also be turned back into a BMX with a different set of wheels.
