Default First build : Need a bike to build on.

Hey everyone, first post here. I'm John, obviously. Looking to build my first motorized ride.

I've purchased the Grubee 66/80cc AngleFire engine kit from one of the many websites offering them, for around $150.00. It is due to arrive the Monday after Christmas. I'm trying to find a bicycle that would be a good match to mount it without too much modification.

I have a front suspension mountain bike, with front and rear brakes, and "grip shift". But after looking at the kit, I can see that its far from ideal. Having to remove the front brake, and modify the throttle so that it won't interfere with the shifters isn't something I'd like to do.

I'm looking for some suggestions as to what brand or perhaps even what style of bike I should use to attempt this.

Any tips would be appreciated. I'm going to go cruise the forum now and probably find all the answers I'm looking for. But I still prefer to ask =)
