I just completed the re-assembly of this custom painted Surly Cross-Check.
It’s hard to believe that the humble Surly Cross Check, a practical and versatile work horse could be transformed into such a bespoke upright machine. The cross-check becomes a cross town?
The owner selected the color scheme with only a few staff parts suggestions. The major modifications besides the paint were the swapping of the Soma Oxford Handlebar and attendant parts with the addition of a Brooks Saddle, leather bar wrap, Soma Xpress 35mm Terra Cotta walled Tires and stunning gilded Honjo fenders.
In keeping with the bronze color theme I spaced the fender out with some amber shellac’d cork bottle bits.
