Re: First build questions on what type bike to buy...
Thanks, I actually did pony up the extra $60 for the Electra Cruiser 7spd which has the front and rear cable brakes. I figure it will save me a lot more than $50 down the road.
I probably would have put a suspension for on the front to get front brake.
I order the Jet "80cc" 2 stroke motor kit from gasbike.net and I'm hoping to do the whole project for under $500. Then the plan is to sell the first build and take what I learned and build a better one in the spring
