Wink Re: Aluminum or Steel? Which do you prefer?

And then again, there is current frames of choice. And for various reasons that I won't go into....steel (chromoly) is better right?

Anyhow, my current rides, both 2-stroke and 4-stroke are built on really cheap Chinese frames and they're awesome! Before I put engines on them, they were the lightest, most easy to ride cruiser's I have ever owned. They handle like a dream with or without the engines, but when you put an engine on them (with the kit and all), they just become HEAVY....period.

Still aluminum is my choice for frame and component material and titanium is my second choice....different feel and more costly. Butted chromoly is my third choice, but hey....who really cares!

Ummm, I guess I do

And Honda too:

If motorcycles use aluminum for frames.....guess what?
