I'll confirm that Gunnar makes some sweet bikes. I really like my Crosshairs!

I agree that the swing bikes are a riot to arse around on and the Merlin Newsboy would be a class act. I think Jeff Jones had a cruiser 'ish build too. I liked Felt's Troy Lee Designs tribute called the "Happy Hour" I saw at Interbike a few years ago too.
As for plain old run of the mill Electra has a few reasonably priced models. Here are ours on surf duty

I think there are pretty much great rides by everyone that has posted. Most of them are for smaller folk, but still really nice looking bikes, and many well ridden bikes.

actually I think every one of those was for full on adults except maybe the swing bike, but it makes a great adult toy when you add alcohol

indeed. I've posted this before in this thread, but probably not in 20 pages, so wtf, I'll do it again... this is *my* adult cruiser... I'm 6' tall, this bike fits me perfectly.



its only got 5 gears, ranging from fairly low to fairly high, its lighter than a 30 year old steel frame cruiser has any right to being, and its a great ride around town.
