Beach Cruiser goes Global!!

A local bicycle manufacturer from Lake Forest California has teamed up with the Huntington Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau to build a beach cruiser that will help promote Huntington Beach as a overnight destination. This cool bicycle features a wooden chain guard and deep blue paint work.

The classic deep blue beach cruiser by Felt bicycles.

Felt Bicycles of Lake Forest expects to launch the beach cruiser by March 2006 locally and globally at a retail price of $539.99, the higher end of the price scale for a beach cruiser. The design inspiration comes from the popular gathering of classic cars at a local doughnut shop, Donut Derelicts off of Adams Avenue, Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach already has a world class following with the World Championship Surfing that takes place each summer so the addition of a classic styled bicycle will only add to the Surf City lifestyle. Downtown on a cruiser is the thing to do so this two wheel take of the classic woodie will keep heads turning!

  1. Paul,

    No doubt you have a nice collection of beach cruisers at reasonable prices, perfect for the summer months ahead. Not as classic as the Felt but a good buy none the less.

  2. does anybody remember where the beach cruiser bicycle started ??
    it was in 1973 at my bike shop recycled cycles in newport beach. I had my old paperboy bike a schwinn wasp and brought it into my newpot beach store and restored it. I felt this style bike was best suited for the beach, comfort, durablity and nostalgic, I dubed this the “california beach cruiser” t.m. the rest is history, copied and plagerized by everybody.

  3. Do you think the beach cruiser is a natural progression from the original Schwinn J-38, Sting-Ray. I know with the birth of the BMX that the popularity dwindled because the next hot trend had begun.

  4. I used to work for Larry when he first opened reycycled cycles on P.C.H. and walnut. I have gone thru hell and back, yet today I remembered his name.
    ‘My friend and mentor.’

    How can I reach him, is he alive? Please forward this to him. I will be forever indebted. He is my inspiration.

  5. Looks aren’t the only thing this cruiser has though. It wouldn’t be a sixthreezero without the smooth cruise configuration, so you know it will not only look great, but it’ll give yopu the smoothest and easiest ride possible California Bikes.
