if it's not, maybe you should just try a dirtbike.

Overall a modern cruiser is much much lighter than an old pig irom welded frame with steel rims-

These little motors have that much less to pull then.
If speed isn't an issue with your builds....does it not make sense to go with a "tank" ?...Not to mention durability if and when some dumba** nails you turning right in front of you....whereas the aluminum bikes are lighter....they simply can not compare to the solidity of a steel's that simple....but to each their collective own....
