    So, with my truck not running offroad, and all the great eye candy at the beach, I got back into my project bikes. Finally got around to finishing up my primary cruiser, dubbed PHAT KAT...

    I am waiting on my personalized PHAT KAT license plate to come in, and looking at getting a rear rack and retro dummy brake light.

    Stay tuned for my chopper bike pics.

    thanks!

    yah, im actually considering rigging up a mini wine barrel to the seat back with a long straw so i can fill it up with iced water... or other refreshing beverage... hahaha

    my 7 year old daughter wanted a cruiser too, so we got our hands on an Electra Hawaii 16" on Craigslist for $60

    Stock pic...

    With an hour to kill, my tools, and some misc parts laying around the garage, we came up with CHUBBZ
