Default Re: pulled the string

I just finished building my second Cranbrook. They have a great frame for the engines and really the the only thing on the bike I had to modify was the coaster brake arm (bend to clear sproket bolts) and cut a notch in the fender for chain clearance. I'm 6' and most all cruisers are way to cramped for me, on my cruiser I cut and welded the seat post tube so the seat is as low as I can get it and puts the nose of seat at the front of the seat post tube so its a ways back too. Very comfortable this way. I have not seen a seat post that does this so had to make one. I did have to weld in an extra support bolted to the brake cross bar after my 225lb son went off a curb with it and the weld started to crack!
