    Heh heh, yeah, they used to only do 55-6-7 Chevy work.

    Until I showed them the beauty of a Cruiser!

    Is that tub from a 77 or a 74? I thought a 74 would need alot of modifications!

    Looks like a 74 to me, doesn't have the roll bar mounts on the fender wells.

    Exactly.

    A few months after I ordered the tops from CCOT, they came out with the top/side combo - wish I had waited a few months!

    nope...they went quick. that 77 was cherry before some jackass blew a light and t boned it! about all i have left are a bunch of still gold plated bolts! didn't snap a bolt until i got to the rear crossmember! bumper bolts came right off, turn signal bolts came right off!

    the motor/trans/xfer are giving life to my 45 and the oem floormat is in there also. disc brakes and front bumper went to magoo. spare tire carrier and hood latches went to my best friend's (kim) cruiser, which is now owned by subzali. rest got sold/given to various other cruiserheads around the country.
