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.
So what is a good suggestion for a beach cruiser? I'd rather find something on the used market at a bargain. I would like to ride a bike anyways.
