Gear Talk / Beach Cruisers
« on: June 02, 2006, 11:28:23 am »
This is why a Scotsman is on an American website. You may cringe but are replacing my long lost Raleigh Bomber with a replica beach cruiser as the Bomber was a type of beach cruiser. Have a 'Y' frame mountain bike with rear coil suspension, strangley it has traditional forks with traditional size 26 ins [590] wheels with a single speed rear hub with an Alice band cardboard drum brake at the rear! The seat has been replaced with a cruiser style sprung saddle and the handlebars have been changed to a BMX style bar, the only differance is the reinforcing bar in the middle is bolted on. The tyres have been replaced with Greentyre Marathon which is closer to a 40-45C in width than the normal 35C though have no idea what the proper size is. I'm hoping you guys can help me with advice on how to perfect the look and would love to get the proper handlebars, well guys what do you think? If interested can send colour photies for you to assess the bike. There is no beach cruisers this side of the pond so would like to own at least a replica. Also own a genuine 26ins BMX Cruiser too! A rare beastie which again are doing my best to restore as authentically as possible. Do you still use beach cruisers or are they all gone now with the modern mountain bikes??? :quest:
