I came across this auction today and thought some of the pics might be helpful.

... the cycling world is deeply wounded.

I personally don't like the '57 Chevy. My wife's Reliant lost a shoving match with one once. The Chevy had a tiny little dent about the size of a pea. The Reliant needed a whole rear quarter-panel.

I'd say my cruiser might be the '57 Chevy of bikes.
Exactly...SenorPedro

When I think of an American classic, it is the Schwinn cruiser. I think that frame is more like an old firebird.

it's an Alfa Spider Veloce. ie: pretty cool unless you park next to a Ferrari.
Ok, better comparison ;) nmSenorPedro
