Default Re: quality of cruiser?

Yeah I just bought a Cranbrook for the Wife because she wanted a classic bike. (5 years ago when I wasn't looking for them they just fell into my lap, but now that I want them I can't ever find them unless their way overpriced.) So I saw the Cranbrooks and had her pick one. She liked the male model more so we got it. I am looking at the worksmanship and welding done....I would never put a motor on this bike. They didn't get the side tubes even. There is almost an inch of difference, lol. I just started building frames and can do better than that. Also there are a lot of poorly done high stress welds that wouldn't take long to seriously rattle that bike to bits. Still your choice but for safety's sake I wouldn't motorize it.
