Richard's Purple Cruiser Commutocruiser

This is what it looked like for most of its 15-year life:

Cruiser (before)

And then something happened - an arm on the rear rack failed, and my favorite bike was dragged behind the truck at 65 MPH. For some distance.


We could rebuild it. We had the retro-technology. We had more than enough parts scavenged from swap meets - and a few rolls of electrical tape. We could make it better, stronger, faster... OK, maybe not faster. ;)

Rebuilt - & looking a bit different

Yes, it does look a bit different these days - but still comfortingly familiar.
