CHOPPERS & CRUISERS

Often custom motorcycles.

Choppers and cruisers are motorcycles that generally provide a more relaxed feeling while riding. Choppers are motorcycles that are stripped of all the unnecessary bits. Also the frame gets adjusted. They most often get a wider wheel base. The wheels are places further apart from each other by using a longer front fork. Are parts added to a chopper? Then they are often custom made parts. For that exact same reason, the whole custom made part, we can’t give you an overview of seat heights.

We do can provide you an overview of seat heights of cruisers and motorcycles which are often used to build a chopper. Cruisers often remind you of choppers due to their looks and that relaxed riding style which they’ve got in common. The difference is, that cruisers do roll out of a factory. The overview below therefore contains cruisers too.

Let’s get down to business. Calling a motorcycle ‘a high bike’ is, of course, a subjective topic. But to make it all a bit easier we drew a line at 31.5 inches. All bikes below 31.5 inches are classified as ‘motorcycles with a low seat height’. Above 31.5 inches we classify the bikes as ‘motorcycles with a high seat height’. We’ve done this with a perspective from riders who are around 5′ 6″ tall.
