Isn't there a company there who does an aluminium cruiser bike? I remember finding one down here and checked our their website. The prices were reasonable.I kinda like the way it looks and suppose it's hi-ten and heavy. Here in the US there is a company, Retrotec, that makes a similar looking series starting at $2200 for a tig frame and $2700 'for lugged. Maybe get 2 or 3? The local lbs was building up a frame for a customer and it was light and very pretty if you like that sort of thing.
