Yes, I intend to purchase an electric cruiser for use along the coast both directions from Huntington Beach. I like the workout with my regular cruiser, but the electric power would extend my range considerably. But I am having trouble finding just the right electric bike. It seems there is always something that is not quite the way I want it. Come to think about it, that is the same problem I have with finding a woman.

I have an EV Warrior that I converted to front hub motor (600W, 36V) from the original friction drive.
It had cruiser style body and stearing. I like it a lot but I live too far from the beach. It doesn't get much use. I will be interested in a trade. PM me if you are interseted.

Well if your seriously looking I sell electric bikes and electric beach cruisers. The electric bikes that I have are way below the market, get about 28-30 miles to a charge. About 9 cents to charge, speed is up to 22 mph. You can peddle or use electric. The electric bike (green machine) that I have is about $922. Here's a link for the first one.

The electric beach cruisers that I have are just *****in, can get any colors you want. These ones are about $1222, their lithium, up to 25 miles, speeds up 20 mph. You can peddle or use electric.

Here's a link for the second one. The only difference is I put lithium on top of the back wheel and the electric gears on.

Let me know if you have any interest.

I don't know if I'd classify that first link as a "beach cruiser"...

The other one listed as a "Lithium Cruiser" is actually a Greenline electric bike. There's quite a few online retailers carrying these models so make sure you shop around. If you're looking for a "beach cruiser", the Greenline's are a good choice...

I appreciate the suggestions. The problem I have with the Greenlines I've seen advertised is that they have 24v batteries (instead of 36v) and the bikes are heavy at 67 pounds. Many of the lithium powered electrics run about 50 pounds, including battery.

Unfortunately, most "beach cruiser" style bikes have steel frames. This is the main reason the Greenlines are so much heavier than many other electric bike models. And even though most e-bike kits are 36V, many of the "pre-fabbed" electric bike models (like the Greenline's) are 24V. For the average rider, 24V is perfect - especially if there are no hills and inclines. But if you're looking for more power and speed, an electric bike kit might be the way to go...
