Thumbs down Schwinn Quality? Schwinn Hurricane?

I was in Toy-R-Us with my youngest son this past weekend and checked their bike selection too see if anything was worth motorizing.......I saw two Schwinn cruisers. They were both the same model (Hurricane) and were selling for $139.99. The more I looked at them, the more I was convinced I would not put an engine on one.

Then I had too laugh seeing the Schwinn Quality emblem on the seat tube.....what a joke! Those things are so poorly thrown together in China, some of the tubing bends looked like they crimped in a vice and then yanked on. I wouldn't pay $139.99 for the both of them, let alone stick an engine on them.

The only thing I can say nice about the Schwinn "Hurricane" is the color scheme......kind of a semi-gloss/flat black with blood red graphics and accents.
