Iíve had this bike finished now for a year I think but never really went for a test ride. Only rode three and a half mikes but itís smooth. I think I need a setback seat post though. My knees are feeling it.

I don't remember the brand, sorry. I got it from one of those cruiser bike parts stores on-line.

I guess its been two years. Found this photo from 2018. This is the original color, I was playing with the set-up. I had the frame and change guard stripped and powder-coated a very dark blue. You can only see it in the direct sunlight. I love the color.
