amaes' Beach Cruiser Build

Picked this bike up last monday the 7th and have been working on it a few days this week.

The original bike was a Huffy Panama Jack bike. And being that Its lame having something that everyone else has or can buy I thought I'd make it my own.

Day 1 Stock:

All of the "wood" parts on it are plastic

<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>

<br/><br/>

Day 2 Breakdown:

<br/><br/>

<br/><br/>

Day 3 Buy new real wood and trace old parts:

<br/><br/>

<br/><br/>

Day 4 Rough cut the parts with a jig saw then shape them with a sander then Stain. Also i picked up a Light at a swap meet:



<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>
<br/><br/>

<br/><br/>

Stay tuned for more updates

Thanks Mike. I have to say this has been one of the most fun projects I have worked on in a while. and its been cheap too

Here are some update pictures from last night. They are pretty crappy so I'll take better ones after work. So my idea to make the caps flush mounted to the wood didn't work. Every time I tried to drill the hole it would split the piece in half. So after rebuilding it twice I just glued them to the top. and they look pretty good that way i must say.

Figured I'd update this.

Added Cork Grips with bottle cap end caps
Bottle cap valve caps
Made a headlight with a Beer Tasting can I got at a festival
Converted the rear reflector to a LED tail light
Took off the cup holder
Added a Little License plate (Gotta support the team) lol











Rode it to a Local Brewery. Got TONS of compliments on it all night long
