Default Re: trying to select a bike

Howzit I too am on Kauai and ive found it is best to just get a walmart or k-mart bike....all the bike stores are too expencive....You can build a bike from there add your motor then make whatever improvements you like....the point beach is fine. And I do think you will find that a coaster brake is inadequite....something that has front and rear caliper brakes will work. Pick a bike that has no rear suspention....front suspention will work fine...some mountian bikes will work if the frame has enough space.....I recently built a point beach from wallyworld (as they call it on the forum) with a 66cc is fairly easy to mount the motor and I put a layback seatpost to make it more comfortable to ride.....I also built a mongoose paver 700c(from walmart)it was my first and favorite bike....You can see from the pic that ive made many modifications....Anyway i live in Waipouli and if I can be of any help just PM me

Way cool to see a Kauai boy on here .....Welcome
