If I bought one, I would buy a genuinely old Troxel seat to put on it and all white tires. Very cool. :)

Holy crap! I'm not a fan of cruisers at all, but I almost bought this bike just now.

How about converting it to an electric bike with a rear hub motor and hiding a Lithium Polymer battery in the faux tank area?? Boy what a dream!

On second thought, that's just a 2 sided sign there, not a tank:

Shouldn't be too hard to make a tank.

How about dropping the handlebars on upside down, like a board track racer?

Just saw one in person. Pics when I get home. It has an actual tank!
