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.

The jig worked awesome, got it welded together and looking more like a frame, going to have to put it together and go for a test ride, already helped the Huffy

1965 Schwinn King Size Heavy Duti

Looks like the King Size tall frame version? Is it original or did you restore it? Nice Ride.

Thanks! I found it on eBay, the previous owner had restored it, it is original. It is a tank, I didn't realize how much larger the Heavy Duti is compared to the American.

My Electra mod...2 speed kick-back hub, springer fork, Brooks Saddle and a gorgeous blue/black powder coat you can't really see in the photo.

Oh and a "wooden tank" the original owner made with a Shlafly Beer bottle opener attached for those long hot rides...

I've ridden many different kinds of bikes over the years, but never a beach cruiser until this summer. Two were provided for free use with a beach house I rented on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. So while I was there I used one of them to ride down the road a few miles and visit a local bike shop.

Just lately been discovering the joy of riding cruisers. Have had this stored away for years, never intending to actually use it. I've attached a homemade seat on the rack for carrying my daughter to and from school. I installed rather crude foot pegs as well. (neither mod. pictured) Yes, I know it's a ladies' bike.

It's a step through frame... Not necessarily a ladies bike 😁👍

Oh cool! Maybe that makes me feel better about my old Schwinn Le Tour that I've been calling a Mixte but I suspect is a ladies' bike.

I'm 51 years old, and I'm seeing no shame in using a step through frame. If it allows you to ride, own it!!!
