One day several years ago I walked into a K-Mart and saw this little challenge of a bike. An aluminum frame, but overloaded with heavy steel parts.
It's been an ongoing project ever since.
I've done the same thing with several cruisers I've bought in Walmarts. These bikes are deceptively light once you shed the steel parts and replace them with alloy equivalents.
This one has gone through several changes and I documented them for a change.
Don't be fooled, I've ridden this bike hundreds of miles. To Long Island and back.
