chusan,
nice cruiser you got there! Using coaster brake? BTW, where can I find those handle bars of yours? I also have a cruiser but using Raleigh handle bars aka Ah Pek handle bar....keke..
To fudge: you got sharp eyes!! haha...veri difficult to get an original front rack from that period. Guess not in the fancy back then, especially Asia. You can see alot of these racks in UK. Maybe I should visit auction site to get it.

i think Blackburn made front racks that are suitable, else can hunt around Nashbar or other US online shops

woops this one won't work as your coaster bike doesn't have the bosses in front.

Just got a new accessory for my 'girl'. A vintage 'spinning' brass bell! Luv the sound it produces.
I have been searching across straits, oceans and seas for this bell and finally found it right at my 'door-step'. Met a fellow collector and decided to part with it as he can see I'm sincere and down right desperate to have it! haha....Anyone has any information regarding it's manufacturer/history? Anyone else owns one? Pls share....thanks.

The last one...I have seen it before. Let me go up North and confirm....but what's the price you're looking? PM me your intended buying price and I see whether it's worth going all the way in to get it. Cheers.
