Beach Cruisers Do you love balloon tires and fenders? Do you love riding the simplicity of a single gear and coaster brakes or a single gear cluster? Do you love the classic curves in the tubing of a cruiser that takes you back to the 1950's and 1960's, stylistically? Here's your home! Welcome to the Beach Cruisers and Cruisers forum!

You're in the wrong forum.

This was never a beach cruiser. It's a hand built steel (or maybe Titanium) race bike designed to be evocative of the classic cantilever frame bikes of American manufacture.

I believe (very vague memory) that the builder is one of the guys from Portland OR, but that's just the vaguest of memories from having seen it or one like it at a hand built bike show. Since I've probably seen more hand builts in Philadelphia, there's a good chance the builder was from that area.

You might repost in the C & V forum, or look up photos from the North American hand built bicycle show.
