Re: Need advice. Second build
Dave and thegnu are both right. A Panama Jack is a Cranbrook with accessories on it. Hind sight being 20/20, I would have bought a Cranbrook and saved the money. I took all the "crappy accessories" off. Most either rattled or looked like crap. If you go with the Panama Jack (like I did), for God's sake, ditch the seat. It's horrendous.
Thegnu has the right idea. Get a bike with speeds, put a Chinese 2 stroke engine on it, and put a Sick-Bike-Parts shift kit on it. That's what I'm doing, and I can't wait.
I rode my buddy's bike that has a gears and a shift kit, and I immediately went out and bought a bike with gears. It's a lot of fun, and I strongly recommend it.
