Most cruiser styles will require a custom front engine mount. Yours however appears to be more of a 'V' frame which might allow for a bolt on installation. Lots of good ideas here on that subject if you need it.
Also, most cruiser style frames will benefit from a lay-back seat post which will make for a very comfy ride. Good luck and keep us posted on your build. Don't hesitate to ask if questions or problems arise.
Thanks for the info. What sort of problems with the fenders are you talking about? Are you saying reinforce reinforce the fender mounts?
