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!

Show me your cruiser.

I have two old Schwinns, but neither one is OLD. You are right, I won't find if I don't look, and I live in a an area that seems to be garage sale heaven too. I should do more scavenging.

AMF_Wick, I really dig your black cruiser.

Here is my ROSS


And my girlfriend's AMF(?)


I'm not sure what years they are, but I think they are both from the 60's.

Hi ya'll
Proud original owner of this 1998 Dyno Moto-Glide.
It has roller brakes and a 4-speed nexus hub as original equipment.




I don't know if it was actually made in Santa Anna CA but thats what the badge on the head stock says.

This bike was made in Chicago, USA in 1964. Some modifications have been made since then.

Thought I would post a few pics of my Sawyer with new Maxxis Ardent Skinwalls & new B17 Aged saddle. I think it compliments the battleship grey somewhat better!





I am impressed with how well they roll over payment.

No cantilever frame. No spring saddle. No coaster brake. Weighs less than 50 pounds. Sorry. You don't qualify.
