By ordering the individual components, the builder gets a kit that eliminates 90% of the hassles associated with installing the HT engine.

That sounds wise, Jim. You never know if Schwinn or Huffy decides to pull a model anyway. I'll be interested to see how these may apply to older bikes, say Schwinns from the fifties and sixties. Frame designs were the same for many models. We'll learn as we go which bikes use the same mount configuration and a data base will grow. Sounds good.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
