Japanese Working Bike

Took this pic in Tokyo at the Tskiji Fish Market during a trip out there.  This is pretty awesome! A Dutch cruiser with rod brakes.  How do they keep them from rusting or mis-aligning???  I've not had the opportunity to work with a bike like this but I'll have to put this on my to-do list in the future.

Killer Kickstand BTW

Schwinn Suburban Cruiser

Haulin' Bikes back to the workshop!  A Blue Mens Schwinn Suburban and a Green Womens.
Working indoors over during the cold weather.  My kitchen is temporarily taken over by tools and Bikes!

This was my personal ride for a short while.  The bike is just a little short for me but I love the smooth and easy ride the Suburban.  I could swing my legs over the top tube to dismount on this guy.  I called it my Grampa bike and hooked up a milk crate, ghetto style on the back.

Sold it to a good neighbor of mine who had a bike like this in college but hasn't ridden since.  Brought him back to the good ol' days which makes me real happy!  I'm glad it went to a good home.  Thanks Bruce for getting back into bicycles.
