You may have a binding brake, jack up the Cruiser and check that all wheels run freely. Usually there is a bit of transmissoin drag but it should be obvious which wheel it is. Generally when a brake binds it is due to the brake pads siezing in the caliper, this is due to brake dust build up and lack of lubrication.

If it was a bearing issue I think you would be aware by now, bearings usually give you an audible warning before they destroy themselves. Have you had the steering geometry checked? you may have a bent steering/ suspension component or a misaligned axle.

done also alignment and still persist, could it be some bushing that hold the axle beam worn out, if so i will notice from beneath. Yah if bearing give way sure will noticed.

does it seem to pull to the right all the time? even just a little because if it was a bent suspension component it should pull all the time, not a lot but a little, also check the wear on the tire, if the tread wear is uneven then it probaly is a suspension piece
