Who knows, maybe ill keep it blue and save myself the trouble. Honestly, for a hunfred bucks, it seems like the best deal out there. And please heed my warning about size. The cranbrook is short and you really sit straight up and cramped, but im 6'1". The handlebars are also at an uncomfortable angle for me compared to the delmar.

WaterDog, you are right on about the cranbrook frame being short, I have one that is not called the cranbrook but is the same frame, I am 5'10" 200lbs and I am cramped on it while peddling and turning, the handle bars are the biggest draw back on the bike for me, so I am gonna put ape hangers on it and a setback seat post to give me a little more room and then it will be better I hope if not I'll be putting the engine on a better frame I have ( The Last Pic ).
