    (crappy iphone pics.)

    Replaced the tires, and the bars. My next "mod" new breaks. Everything on this bike is OG so you can imagine how rusty some parts are, But the frame is in great shape! I'm going to keep it a 5 speed. I love having the gears. My next project will be maybe a flat black with red accents single gear. But for now this is what a cruise!

    Saw a wicked fixie wreck at last month's bike party. Three guys ripping it up between other bikes (there are well over a thousand participants and it's kinda wild). Guess they forgot the no brakes thing...

    which is why i use a beach cruiser

    seriously who ever decided no brakes on a bike is a good idea is a moron. and whoever followed that morons idea is a fuckin retard. youre not impressing anyone by having no brakes. its safety at its basics.

    picked this up at the beginning of the semester, the last owner made it a single speed using the stock cassette, i've been riding it everyday :) hopefully next summer i'll be able to make some changes: bars, bar tape, maybe switch out the remnants of the cassette for spacers and one cog, and a seat. but for now it's awesome
