Default Re: bones from southside chitown...

I picked up a cranbrook tonight... (im right by the indiana border where tax isn't bad)... $88 before tax. I also ordered the pugasta (spelling?) tank on ebay. Here are my plans for now...
1- strip frame and tank... repaint flat black
2- add tan tires, tan grips and a tan saddle (mounted boardtrack style)
4- scrap the fenders and use a bent springer with front brake
5- replace cheap huffy pedals
6- add a manic sprocket adapter and motor mount
7- ht engine

im not good at sketching, but i can picture it in my head...

p.s. - i actually thought about fabricating a coffin tank, but i have absolutely no welding skill...
(maybe one day)!!!

also... note to others... its near impossible to fit a assembled cranbrook in a chevy aveo... but it can be done!
