Be careful with the Micargi's. I've heard on ratrod bikes that they tend to fall apart pretty quickly. I'd beef up the wheels by going to stainless with 12g spokes and double check the headset and bb. Also look at the rear hub too just in case. I think that these inexpensive bikes, Wallyworld included, are a great starting point, but I also think that there are certain components that definitely need to be looked at closely before motorizing the bikes.
