Reviews – American Cruiser UK


Roger this bike has not missed a beat with two up riding through the summer months, with the cold and damp wether and another lockdown underway it’s not moved too much, but brings a big smile to my face when opening up the garage.
Your a very honest guy, who sells genuine honest bikes, a total breath of fresh air within the trade.
Hope to buy more beauties in the coming years.

Just wanted to echo the comments on this page. Picked up an Arlen Ness Victory Vision from Roger this weekend. I am fastidious and picky about bikes and Roger was really helpful with the barrage of questions coming his way. His stock is really well selected and he takes a real pride in the bikes, a real enthusiast with a great knowledge. When picking my bike up he took the time to show me and start up a mint Valkyrie just so I could hear the 6 into 6 pipes (what a sound!). I am super happy with the bike which is just as described and a fantastic example. Thanks Roger for the great service.

Just taken charge of the Stratoliner sent to me , I am over the moon with this bike, I put a deposit on it as soon as I saw the photos of it, and talked to Roger, I could not have picked out a better bike if id done it myself,,American Cruiser UK bikes are of a better quality than the run of the mill bikes offered here in the Uk, and Roger takes care of all the paper work etc, so that when you get your bike, its all ready to go,,, first class, many many Thanks, maybe one day ill buy you a pint!!! Cheers

Thankyou Roger. Just arrived today my VT1100 ACE. over the moon with the bike and Rogers description was spot on, bought off pictures but has turned up and looks better in the flesh. Love it. Thanks again.

A big thank you to Roger for my recent purchase from American Cruiser Uk, my Honda valkyrie is fantastic, the ride back to west Wales was a dream. The feedback I got from guys here was “That’s In MINT CONDITION ” I’m a very happy bunny. And will have no hesitation in recommending AMERICAN CRUISER UK to any of my fellow bikers. 6 stars******

Steve Willmot - West Wales

Wow, great service, great bikes all immaculate! I purchased my Valkyrie off the website when the bike was halfway across the Atlantic! 2 months later all paper work completed, UK registered by Roger and I collected with nothing to do! Couldn’t recommend anymore, 10 star if I had the option!

Steve Bell - Kent

My first big bike purchase. Couldn’t of wished for better guidance. I wanted the Valkyrie but found it a bit overpowering so Roger suggested the Shadow VT1100 as it was similar but more of a lightweight bike. The condition of all of his bikes I saw including this one are absolutely outstanding. I love the bike, watercooled, shaft driven, hard bags and detachable windshield. Sounds fantastic! What’s not to like?

I had been looking for another bike for a little while, the idea was to get something to customise into a cafe racer, then the realisation that I was not 18 anymore and the back and wrists would not cope with a radical riding position. It was then that I came across a Yamaha Road Star on EBay, well there were one or two but this one was nicely presented and beautifully photographed. I also found a video of it and that was it. The decision was made, she would be mine. Spoke to Roger and the deal was done. It was a long week to delivery, but I was not disappointed. Beautiful colour and the perfect size for a shorty like me. The condition is very good one or two little stone chips but nothing serious, excellent for a 12 year old bike, low milage and even the oil was clean. Overall It has been a good experience,  Ed

I couldn’t be happier with my Valkyrie Tourer that I purchased from Roger. It’s in an absolutely outstanding condition and a real head turner. The first time I saw the bike in the flesh was when it arrived in the back of specialised motorcycle transporter. The photos, the walk-around video and the numerous phone conversations that preceded, were honest, accurate and a real pleasure. The bike runs, rides, looks and sounds amazing, what more could you ask for…

Mark Young - Tunbridge Wells Kent

Just bought a Kawasaki VN Meanstreak 1500 off Roger, fantastic bike!

Great service and very helpful

Ade Hill - Brighton W Sussex

I brought a great bike from Roger a little while back and it was a pleasure doing business with him. The quality of bikes is very good and the customer service is fantastic. If you ever want a beautiful , powerful cruiser delivered or to collect yourself then make sure you check out American Cruiser UK first ÷) All the best Lewis.

Lewis Read - Southampton Hants

For many years I have wanted to own a ‘cruiser’. Having looked at the website, I arranged to visit Roger to view current stock. One was chosen. Had to wait to take delivery as I am frequently out of the country.
Stage payment was arranged and the bike was collected early November. Very pleased with my choice, draws attention everywhere its parked.
Unbelievable service from Roger, great attention to detail, Bike was spotless. Could not be happier.

Laurence Bealing - Oakley Hampshire

Hi Roger,managed to catch the 16:00 ferry can get a move on for a so called cruiser can’t it!!!!!

Great bike,thanks for all your help Roger!

David Cotton - Isle of Wight

Just had my nomad delivered by Alien motorcycles( fantastic service) from Roger,the transaction was done all over the phone,and viewed via detailed high resolution photos and video walk around,I was hesitant at first about buying a bike without seeing it in the flesh,but shouldn’t have worried.
The quality of the bike is excellent,and far outweighed my expectations,dealing with Roger was a pleasant experience,as its a breath of fresh air to deal with an honest and amiable motorcycle seller. Definitely recommended and worthy of the 5+ star rating

Darren Sketchley - Bromsgrove

Over the moon Roger with my new dream bike Yamaha Stratoliner xv1900 S. Thanks for a great service and a great bike. Top marks to Jason (Alien Motorcycles) who delivered it as well, both you guys are very professional.

Jim Judd - Stourport-on Severn

Purchased a Yamaha Royal Star from American Cruiser UK and from start to finish it went very smoothly. Bike arrived on time and in the condition stated on the page . I’m well chuffed and would recommend them to anyone thinking of getting a cruiser that’s not your run of the mill cruiser . Thanks Roger. From a very satisfied customer. Don .

Donnie Reid - Ayr Scotland

Thank you Roger, I’m extremely pleased with my Suzuki Volusia VL800.  The bike was better than described and the ride home was very enjoyable, even the sun came out to play.
I will be back to buy another. Another smiley happy customer.

Ray Judd - Upavon Wiltshire

On having seen the pictured bike on a link that took me through to Ebay I went to the webpage of American Cruiser UK,

Here I found a very detailed description of the bike with plenty of pictures and a video with the bike running so you can get an idea of what it sounds like,,

After contacting Roger via message I then spoke to him over the phone and found him to be very helpful and informative.

Now I decided to take the plunge and drive the almost 200 miles to see the bike, again Roger was very helpful and accommodating.

The bike itself is everything I was told it was and I’m very happy with my purchase.

I even got a message a couple of days later asking if m journey home went ok and had I had a chance to ride yet..?


Thanks very much Roger, an all round good experience dealing with you, great service and awesome bikes..

John Woodfield - Mansfield Notts

Hi Roger,

Ecstatic with my  bike, just love riding her , a real  pleasure to purchase a bike from a genuine and knowledgeable guy,

Rode over 250 miles the weekend,  and loved every mile,   And a big Thank you to Jason  of Alien Motorcycles for delivering the bike on Friday,

Two very professional guys , would certainly buy from again in the future,

Thanks Roger and Jason  from a very satisfied customer

Exceptional variety of bikes; exceptional service; and a great bloke. Having decided to buy a cruiser I found one of Roger’s bikes on eBay. This led me to the website where I found a whole variety of different cruisers. One of the bikes I liked developed a small fault whilst Roger was prepping the bike. Roger was very honest and let me know immediately and kept me informed of what was happening and did everything he could to resolve the issue. As time ticked on (and I was bikeless having sold my own bike) Roger suggested having a look at some of the others. I fell in love with a Royal Star Tour Deluxe. Fantastic condition for 10 years old and an engine that guys are getting 200-300,000 miles out of so should last a year or two! I took it and rode home and am loving every minute I spend on it. I’ve since met a few other guys who got their bikes from Roger and who also speak very highly of him. He’s developed an extremely good reputation and I can understand why. At the moment, I can’t imagine parting with my new ride but if I ever do then there’s only one place I’d consider getting the next one from. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending American Cruiser UK for your first or next cruiser.

After looking for a while for another Valkyrie came across the American Cruiser UK site, Roger had quite a few Valkyries on there along with other bikes so after a short time took the plunge and called him about the Beach Cruiser Valk because I liked the look of it, it was a little different from the norm.
During our conversation he told me about the bike and the company and was very helpful so I arranged to go and look at the bike a few days later. Left early on the Saturday morning for the 350 mile round trip, on arrival Roger was there with a couple of other potential customers but took me straight away to view the bike, he offered us refreshments which were very welcome and left me to continue looking round bike on my own, there was no pressure from him on the sale or no rush on how long it took. There were a couple of marks on bike but we came to an agreement on price to reflect on this and threw in a couple of extra’s too.
The bike didn’t fail to impress burbling along nicely, I had had one of these bikes for 5 years so knew what to expect and wasn’t disappointed by this one.
There was a slight issue with Roger recovering the deposit from Google Pay but he still let me take bike and it was resolved a couple of days later. A real nice genuine man, very knowledgeable about his bikes, and he had some beautiful machines there.
Many Thanks

Just like to add something here. I offered my Honda vt1100c3 Aero, (The nice black and teal blue one) to Roger. Over a few photos, a price was agreed and a couple of e mails later the money was wired to my bank, .Jason from Alien bike transport, collected my bike a couple of days later . The whole experience was smooth, friendly and hassle free. As i imported the bike myself, I can tell you its not that easy to do and there are lots of charges along the way. Its far easier to buy one of Rogers bikes, He has hand picked the very best, and jumped through all the hoops to get it here for you to buy!
Finally, I would just like to add , that whoever buys my Aero will not be disappointed, it rides as good as it looks .

Hi, just a few words about my Yamaha xv1900 Stratoliner S which I bought from American Cruiser UK. Ive had the bike over a week now, and it’s been fantastic, better than I expected. I just want to say a big Thank You to Roger who made the whole process of the sale a breeze.  Even delivered to my door!  I would highly recommend to anybody looking for a cruiser to get in touch with Roger for a first class service. ‘ TOP MAN’.Thanks again Roger.

Brian Sellers - Barnsley

Just cruised home on a beautiful sunny morning from Wiltshire to London on my newly acquired Yamaha Morphous .It was a pleasure meeting and chatting to Roger and checking out his amazing collection of unique and prestine bikes .I would have no hesitation in recommending buying a bike from American Cruiser UK if you are on the market for one pay him a visit, you will be hard pushed to find bikes in better condition given their age and rarity. 5*Jude

I recently purchased the Victory Boardwalk from Roger having seen the photos on his website, but not actually seeing the bike in the flesh, but looking at the quality of the bikes for sale I purchased the bike and Roger delivered, and the bike was as expected and as described by Roger.

Having been out on the bike and everything working as expected and what a quality bike this is and a cracking ride and performance amazing.

Roger many thanks for your assistance and help in purchasing the amazing machine looking forward to more riding and happy days ahead out on the Victory Boardwalk.

You can buy with the utmost confidence from americancruiseruk and Roger is a pleasure to deal with, many thanks again.

Ian Miller - Swansea Wales

Hi Roger, Ive just returned from a long ride on the VTX1800C I collected this morning….AWESOME, what a bike, great condition, super torquey engine and handles nearly as good as my old sports bike but a LOT more comfortable. Again Thanks I have no hesitation recommending American Cruiser UK.

Steve Tooze - Swindon Wiltshire

what a waste of time and money travelling 300 + miles to Salisbury and staying over to view the bike. Should have trusted Roger, bike was as described & better. I will have no trouble in recommending him to anyone, bike arrived nice and early and transport was cheap. Faultless from start to finish. PS bike is fantastic

Ian Cunningham - Hartlepool

Hi Roger hows u doing seems u have brought some sunshine with u from the USA, I thought sod the garden got to take out the bike. Well what can I say, I was blown away with it it pulls like a cart horse and handles very well for a cruiser,  sports bike it”s not  but it is sooooo comfy. I did over  100 miles to day and not a ache from my back or legs felt great, very very happy with the bike!

Jezz Moffat-Roberts - Worcestershire.

Hi Roger, Comfort  and Character just what i wanted …people really do like to stare and do a double take LOL (makes me a poser now) does what it should do . Handles much better than it looks planted on the road
Great clear sound from the stereo at 70 ….what else could you need ….very happy bunny
Beautiful bike , thanks again
James Mcallorum - Crawley

I had the absolute pleasure of purchasing a Suzuki VL800 from Roger in the last few weeks. Bike was in an absolutely fantastic state, clearly very knowledgeable when it comes to maintaining and restoring motorbikes.

I would highly recommend purchasing bikes from Roger, excellent quality and very good pricing considering the quality of the goods. Not to mention very flexible with viewing times and happy to answer any questions you have!

Rhys Hughes - Newbury Berks

Hi Roger, the bike arrived today and looks amazing. Thank you so much its just fantastic, blown away!

Gary Smith - Wakefield Yorkshire.

10 out of 10 ! , Having spoken to Roger on the phone and discussed our requirements we decided to take a trip to see him and his bikes. Took my helmet ( just in case ) and inevitably I rode away on a bike a few hours later ! That is how nice he was ! Thoroughly recommend American Cruiser UK and Roger as totally great chap with some fantastic bikes at very reasonable prices.

Andrew Lees - Wales.

Hi Roger

Hope you are well. Just to let you know that I am enjoying the Drifter. It’s the envy of all my mates. It rides beautifully ,am very chuffed with it. It has made an old man very happy.

Doug Barton - Wokingham Berks

Thanks for everything today, the Boulevard is a cracking bike and will keep in touch. If you still have the 1500 version in a few months, I may be back. My better half loves it. Cheers Roger, you are a top man to deal with. 👍😁😁

Steve Roberts - Haverfordwest Wales

First of all a massive thank you!!
There are many main dealers out there that could learn a thing or two from the service you give to your customers.
Once again thank you for the excellent service!
John Pena - London

I was looking for a cruiser and went to see a few and was left very disappointed then I found Rogers web site and I saw the vn1600 nomad looked at the video and that was it , I bought the bike and it arrived a week later and it was better than the video . Roger was great to deal with no hidden costs just what you see you get a top notch bike. I have been riding for over 40 years and Roger is the best place I have bought a bike from totally on the ball and his stock is beyond reproach so if you want a cruiser go to American cruisers and you will not be disappointed

Jez Moffat-Roberts - Pershore Worcs

Have to say my neighbours are probably delighted as she is a lot quieter than my last bike. That might change.
I have to say that buying my Shadow Ace Tourer from Roger was one of the easiest and pleasant ways to buy a bike. Pictures and reviews gave me some confidence it would be however I just had to go see for myself. Not disappointed! I could have saved myself the trip as she was better looking than in the pics.
The detailing to her presentation was top class and the communication from Roger to tell me what would be done to ensure she was mechanically sound was excellent.
I would certainly buy a bike from Roger again, and wouldn’t bother with the trip to see it.
He is honest in his description and his delivery guy turns up when he says he will.

Roddy - Herts

I would have no problem in recommending American Cruiser UK to any of my friends or indeed to anyone who asks, from start to finish totally impressed with Roger and his way of dealing with potential customers.

The Bike has arrived as planned and more than impressed, my Family are gobsmacked thinking it was going to be a little run around toy for an old man once they saw it fell in love with it and I now have a list of Family members wanting me to take them out on a road trip, the main one being my youngest Grandson who once he sat on it we couldn’t get off.

Many thanks to Jason who kept me informed on delivery on his way up to sunny Salford and many thanks to you yourself who has been helpful all the way the first chance I get I will be paying you a visit on my way to visit an old Army friend down there.

Many Thanks and kind Regards

Alan Davies - Salford
