Vintage Profile Cruiser gets a makeover

4 06 2015

I’ve been drooling over this bike ever since I laid eyes on it.

Restored and built by artist Lix North, this 82/83 Profile cruiser is powder coated in glossy, sea foam green with custom decals. The color choice was inspired by Fender’s iconic seafoam green electric guitars.

While definitely not a color that old school Profile frames were available in, it still tugs the nostalgia chord all the same — given its wide use in cars, guitars and ton of other stuff back in the day. (E.g., GM’s use of the color on the 1956 Buick.)

This unique color color choice is then combined with other awesome throwback items: a GT drop-nose seat (with custom leather cover), pitbull brake, mag wheels and tanwall tires (yes!!).

So good.

You will not be disappointed!

Just an awesome build – great colourway/aesthetics and that custom seat branding is deadly – moar twentyfour!
