Re: First build : Need a bike to build on.
Hi John, welcome. If you don't like the mountain bike idea, you can get a Huffy Cranbrook cruiser at WallyMart for about 80 bucks. That's what I'm riding today. I kept the coaster brake and put a front caliper on it for good stoppage. Not a speed demon, so it all works OK for me. Having coaster lets me hang the front brake lever next to the throttle, clutch on the left.
