Re: Need a bike, need an engine, but just curious in North Texas
Steel cruiser frames are better for gas assist motors. The steel tubing absorbs vibration. The stock motor mounts fit steel frame tubes much better than fat aluminum tubes.
Morini motors are better made, more powerful and more expensive than China motors.
China motors are designed to bolt right on to your bicycle frame.
Mounting a Morini on your bicycle will require fabricated motor mounts.
Make your first build a simple one (steel framed bike with China motor).
If you you still enjoy the hobby after a year, then you are ready to invest in a Morini or build a more challenging bike project.
