    Thanks, it does help :) I think building from scratch will end up being expensive (especially if I'd also want to shop to put it together I guess).

    The way I see it, the most defining characteristics of a "Cruiser" would be the frame-shape/handlebars/seating position. A "swooping" frame, wide (and sometimes high) handlebar and a "laid back"...
