A style of motorcycle generally equipped with a low seat and pullback handlebars. This style of bike predominantly stems from the customizing of standard American motorcycles in the '60s and '70s.
a boulevard or avenue oriented motorcycle with lots of chrome, comfort, a torquey engine, but very little performance
a fake harley
A bike that has a 24" wheel.
Classic styling, fat tires and general simplicity set these bikes apart from others. Cruisers offer wide saddles, upright riding positions and wide swept-back handlebars.
Most 3 or 5 speeds are cruisers. These have upright handlebars and usually a pretty comfortable seat (read: large springs). These bikes are usually 30 years or older. But donâ€(tm)t dismiss these classy bikes because of their age or style. Some of them are remarkably lightweight. These are not high performance machines, but they are just great for tooling around town.
Cruiser is the term for motorcycles that mimic the design style of American machines from the 1930s to the early 1960s, such as those made by Harley-Davidson, Indian, Excelsior and Henderson, even though they have benefited from advances in metallurgy and design. The riding position places the feet forward and the hands up, with the spine erect or leaning back slightly, which many find to be more comfortable for long-distance riding. The riding position of American style Cruisers and Choppers evolved from the saddle and riding position used by Western Cowboys (See Western Saddle).
