    does anyone know of any other beach cruiser with a straight lower bar aside from worksman? I want to build a board track bike and it seems those work best for the in frame tanks available from companies such as phantom bikes ect. I like the worksman frame but they are rarely available and when they are they are pretty pricey. Thank you guys brnot

    IMO

    most bicycle frames are too short lengthwise.
    and especially if you wish to use the swept-back cruiser styled bars.

    IMO it would be fine to use a suitable rear section, and fab your own tubes from the seatpost forward to a neck appropriate for the front forks of your choice.

    IMO if lengths were cut and fitted there would only be an hour's welding labor involved, if you do not have that equipment.

    IMO best to purchase new tube because salvaged bike frame pieces are always too short. the simple bends required could be accomplished cold with a 8lb hand sledge and blocks of wood. a $20 hf grinder should be sufficient for the task of fitting.

    Best
