I've been thinking of building a cool looking trailer park cruiser for some time and I recently came across this forum (at about the same time as my old bike's mechanicals started to fail). I decided to finally build my bike. I did a LOT of web surfing and decided to start with a Cranbrook, partly becauase of the low cost but also, it had several features that I wanted. I want to build my bike as a tribute to the old Indian cruiser motorcycles, like what my dad used to ride. I was going for a style using black handlebars and a minimal amount of Chrome. That is why I decided to go with the Cranbrook fashion model at Wal-mart. I was going to go with the Del Mar but, the frame isn't black, its gray and I'd have to re-paint it. The fasion model Cranbrook already has a black frame and handlebars. Sure, it's got green fenders but they're going to go away anyways. I purchased another set of "stylized" fenders from ebay. I'll be using those. To help with that old-style look, I purchased a springer fork from Bikebuyers-company in black of course. I just got the fenders yesterday and started already assembling them. I'll be waiting for the Cranbrook which should be here this week some time. I can't wait! I know that running fenders on these bikes increases the risk of harm so I reduced that risk by putting another "L" bracket on the fork mount to help strengthen the one that already exists. I left it silver to show the bracket but I'll be painting it black so that it isn't so noticeable. The fenders are going to be red, along with the chain guards and fuel tank. I've got nylon lock nuts to go on all of the bolts for the fenders. Once I get the bike, I'll install the rear fender and the forks. I'm not sure at this point if I'll need to cut the fork tube or not. I've been acquiring goodies for this build over the past weeks and it's nice to at least have two parts that will go together. When I get the bike, things will likely just be a blur.
