Default New guy, what to get?

I know there are a lot of "What to get" threads and I hate to start another one, but as any other person, my want's might be unique.

A little about myself first. I'm 53 years old, 6'0 tall, 198 pounds, ex motocrosser and long time mountain biker. This build would be just for fun riding around the neighborhood. My fabrication skills are above average and I have access to a Bridgeport mill, lathe and pretty much every tool I'll ever need.

My goal is to stay under $1000, run a 4 stroke under 50cc and maybe a stretched beach cruiser type bike that all fits together well and looks like it belongs, not like an "add on" sorta deal.

Another option is I have a Klein Attitude frame collecting dust but since is aluminum and so light, I wouldn't want to drill a hole through the frame.

So a suggestion for a bike and an engine combo that isn't Huffy quality and if I can get a 4 stroke that fits well and all under $1000, I would be ordering stuff tonight!

Thanks and this is a great forum!
