Let's see 'em.  Cool

I bought a Huffy Cranbrook off CL for $60. The PO had already put on aluminum wheels and the basket. I took off and painted the fenders and chain guard. Clear coated them, too. Then, I put on 13" apes and a mirror bought off Amazon. The grips are faux Western tooled vinyl from Hobby Lobby, adhered with two part epoxy.

Is that finish green or silvery? It's hard to say.

Nice lines though. Are you planning any luggage for it?

Thanks.

The frame is metallic gray.

There's room in the frame for luggage. I'm not thinking now of putting any. The basket should be enough for the hand tools and samples I collect at work. That's what this is- in plant transport for when I don't have a truck or UTV. And some exercise. Been spending too much of my day on my butt.

Thanks- green or silver? No, grey... I suppose that's why I didn't see the basket either... Shocked

Thanks

Speaking of bicycles, haven't seen Bicyclebuilder around for a while.

My leg damage doesn't permit a real road bike, but I do have an exercise bike. Wonder what I can do to goose it a little?
