Current build. I know, it's a cranbrook, but my sister gave it to me so I'm not out a lot of cash. No frame mods on this one. Same type of shock fork as the lowered ape hanger bike. Made the seatpost low and rearward. Right now it's disassembled. Fenders and chainguard are gloss black, drying out in the shop. I will Bel-Ray waterproof grease the wheel and crank bearings while it is apart. 5x thicker slime tubes like all my bikes get. Rear tire Hutchinson Lowrider 2.3 something wide/front tire 1.5-1.75 width for that fat/skinny look. Blue/Black/Chrome will look OK I think. Going with 66cc/32 tooth/Black tank on this. Working out LED low consumption lighting so it can have a compact lightweight battery, unlike my first bike. I swear the batt in that one weighed as much as the engine. Trying for 35+mph on level ground. This should be possible with no saddlebags, lighter weight, and lower rider position. Wheeeee!
