It makes a difference in what is a wise choice. My 4 stroke is on a 50 Schwinn Panther. If I can be of any help I'll try to point the way. Is yours a straight bar frame?
Yep, its a '50 straight bar. It is currently a frankenstein with mostly vintage Hawthorne parts. I will need to make it 30 + mph road worthy. Yes, it is hilly at some points (700 ft. total elevation one way). Thanks for the help.
