Lightbulb So I saw this ad on Craigslist...

So I saw this ad on craigslist:

And my situation right now is: Don't have a a motorbicycle yet, but I was going to buy a bicycle and get an engine kit.

But now that I saw this ad, what should I do?

1. Buy the beach cruiser that already comes with the motor. [$240]
  • Save money
  • BUT, I may run into trouble because it's not new
  • Wont have as much fun as buying everything else separately

2.Buy the chopper, and buy an engine kit my self. [$80]
  • Will have more fun picking out parts my self
  • Engine kit will be new, lesser chance of problems
  • Will end up spending more money
  • Never ridden a chopper before, might be too low for my comfort?

I think I'm going to go for the chopper and engine kit separately, but I've never ridden a chopper bicycle before and i think I might be uncomfortable on it because of it's height. How tall are choppers compared to a beach cruiser, and to those people who have choppers do you feel uncomfortable being that low?

Thanks for the input!

~EDIT: Okay, so I just found out that it's hard to put one of these engine kits on a chopper... how hard is it? IS there an aftermarket mount for choppers? I saw this on eBay, but I'm not sure...
The best part about asking questions, is that you add to the pool of information that future builders can look back on through the search function
