    My first Beach Cruiser build, just waiting on the pull start to arrive. I tried out the new cordless drill starting option, it works, but it sucks because if this is how you want to start it up, you have to lug around a drill! Which is ridiculous. Also the little flip cover over the crank gear is super flimsy, this will surely vibrate off the casing. I will be replacing the cover with a solid one. Installed the Grubee HD freewheel axle kit, makes the bike 100% more enjoyable to just pedal. The alignment of the chains went surprisingly well, laser straight! Double stacked 2 rear mounts, and a universal CNC front mount. Had to cut out the stud spacing to accomodate the new Skyhawk front engine studs, they are much larger now.
    Thoughts?

    That's pretty sweet!
    I looked at the Electra bikes site and those 3-speeds are giving me ideas.
    Nice job on the bike, really sanitary.
