Low Rider/Chopper Bike Overview
Low rider bikes are the modified cousin’s of cruisers. Key differences are a long, low to the ground frames, sissy handle bars and long banana seats. The riding position is a very relaxed 'lean-back style' where the rider pedals in front of their torso. The uncanny resemblance of this style bike to chopper motorcycles is what gives it the lower rider name.
Unfortunately the trade off for all that style is that the bike handles poorly and isn’t very fast. Low riders are often quite heavy and can only be ridden on sealed roads.
The fun part is choosing the wicked accessories and colour schemes they come in!
- Low to the ground.
- Heavily customised.
- Slow and heavy.
- Hard to Turn.
