    Saw this thing in WalMart at clearance for $64 and couldn't resist- the foto doesn't show it too well, but this is a 24" set of wheels and a smaller frame than you are used to on a Cranny. Also found that RUSTOLEUM "Regal Red" is a PERFECT match for the frame!!! I am useing RUSTOLEUM white primer to start on bare metal for the tank. I learned that my hubmounts are TOO WIDE to fit inside these weels- hub's the right diameter but the flanges are too close! As it is, there were two prototype mounts that were partially finished when the Brewster Manufacturing order came in- I milled one down an finished it up for this project, that's the final image. This one will be well documented.

    I've been looking for a 24 inch cruiser like that. Did you find them online? or just get lucky and happen to see them as a in store sale item? Tom

    it was on the rack, marked down from $89 to $64... online store states "out of Stock" and I am to understand they might not carry them anymore. The China Trollop motor JUST fits into the frame... any tighter would require lube and a BIG hammer. This one will be a showpiece...

    I have seen the 24in Crannies. I thought about making a muscle bike out of it with apes, bananna seat, and all the usual gear.
