Newport Cruiser

_DSC5232
There are lots of new beach cruisers around but this looked like the genuine article.
The pedals may have been replaced.

The good old chain guard. Remember pant clips that prevented one from getting their pant cuffs caught up in the chain. What can I say... that was the first thing that your photo brought to my mind.

What do you mean, do you "remember" pant clips, Andy? I still have them. :-)

A classic, nicely captured.

LOve, love, love your photos and close-ups!

I probably had pant clips at one time. But mostly we just rolled up the right pant leg if there was no chain guard. Now paint clips have velcro and safety reflectors. :-)

Thanks for the comments

I like the photo Wayne but as to being the real thing like an old Schwinn um no. That's basically a junker Supercycle from Canadian Tire and if one is really into the old beach cruisers you wouldn't be caught dead on that bike.Have a look at this guy for a real taste of bike snobbery. bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com. This guy is very entertaining and has been snobbing online for a few years now.
