After reading about scorchers on 63xc.com's webpage, I realized that I had just built up one. Here are some of the specs:

1973 World Voyageur frame
Waterfork touring fork (thank you Bensbikes and Ebay)
Suzue ProMax hubs laced to CXP 21 rims
Early eighties Diamondback BMX cranks (real low Q-factor)
Avid front Vee brake
backwards cruiser handlebar
Brooks Pro saddle with cover


I need to lower the gearing a bit before I take it offroad. I just used what I had laying around, the wife won't let me spend any more on bikes right now.
