In addition to my sign work (I've had my business for 10 yrs but because of the economy I'm working like I was classically trained in Engineering) I work at the Boeing facility here in Everett, WA. We probably have at least a thousand of those bikes and trikes and they are heavy duty! I think if you took care of them they'd last forever. They have drum brakes, big thick tires and once up to speed are pretty smooth rolling rides. Of course everyone at the plant doesn't give a crap about them and beat them to death but they are nice heavy duty bikes.

Now on to the cheap stuff.... I purchased my Mtn bike back in 1990 and wanted to support an American company, searched High and low and was very disappointed that my Schwinn was built in Taiwan. Oh well, I tried
