Default Re: Huffy Cranbrook from Utah - First Build

Great looking bike!

I have been building off the Nel Lusso and Cranbrook frames, they are cheap but good enough if your not looking for speed. I have been all over them bikes and have found a few tricks. If you are interested we can trade tips and pics. I as well am new here.

I have just bought a new Felt 1903, now the fun really begins.

Note the winking skull painted on the air cleaner cover. We definitely get a lot of comments, especially from the 8-10 year old boys (and "middle-aged" men)...

This one is for my wife. We'll start on mine in a couple months.

If there is interest, we can post more detailed pics later.
