Hi! I'm new to the forum and motorized bicycles but I've been really interested in making one for a while now but I'm still in the beginning stages, don't even have a bike yet. I found this AMF Skyrider on craigslist for $40 Which is so far the lowest price I can find in my area. Only problem is it looks to be coaster brakes and the guy says the back wheel needs to be trued.
If anyone has any tips, comments, or concerns as to whether or not the bike is a good or bad deal, sturdy enough, or worth the hassle of installing new brakes Id really appreciate anything as I'm by no means an expert or even knowledgeable in bicycles, I do however like a good project and tinkering.
