    Hey everyone,
    I came upon this snap of an old cruiser bike on "Ratrods.com"....and for the life of me I've no idea what it is and the site didn't elaborate on it....but it sure would make a cool build I think...LOL....does anyone know what it is ?...also...check out that front end....ever seen a sprung front like that ?


    Thanks,
    Salty.shft.

    Salty,
    Some time ago a member posted some photos of two bikes he was given from a foreign country but for the life of me I can't recall where to find that post. As I remember they both had straight cantilever bars like that one but I don't remember the bars or a front suspension like this one. I'll keep looking and if I find them and they look the same I'll post for you.

    very cool! and I really like that saddlebag. It looks like it comes off easily and a nice size for general utility- I think I saw things like thatabout 1960-

    good tires too- should be a nice build

    the forks are are an "evan-action springer" designed by Harley Earl for the Evan's/Colson company in the 50's.

    the frame almost looks like an old schwinn typhoon, but the back triangle is different. could be custom made, or english.

    the handleybars? them's are just goofy.
