Two Wheels - Six Strings

Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

Nice Bars!

A while back, I gave this old Huffy cruiser to one of my neighbors. Reed is a bit older than me, a Harley-riding landscape contractor. Hell of a nice neighbor.

Anyway, he told me he was looking for a bike like this, so I gave it to him. He rode it a little, but told me that he was constantly hitting his knees on the handlebars. He didn't want to do the Beach Cruiser thing and tilt them up, so I replaced the original handlebars with these old 1-inch diameter Harley riser bars.

I figure Reed will feel more at home with these. It feels like you're on a Harley when you ride the thing!

Put a triple tree on that huffy and one of those old kids twist grips that made motorcycle sounds on it and it'll be all set.

By the way I finished my Space liner "Shreckongost" cruiser.It looks awesome with beach cruiser bars and a flame saddle.Coupled with three speed wheels and those fat ritchey slick tires that used to be on my Cafe bike it looks the HOT ROD part quite nicely.
