Default Re: I've been away from this for awhile, but now I'm back and want to build a bike

Yeah, after doing a bunch of research on those motors, I've come to the conclusion that unless I decide to do a stretch cruiser, or somehow build a cradle frame a-la Big Boy Cycles, I'm going to stick with something that requires less fabrication.

My current idea is to stick with a good old fashioned china girl and look into these shift kits people have been talking about. I want a strong base, so I'm hoping to find a Chicago Schwinn on Craigslist. I keep reading about these Micargi, Huffy, and Firmstrong frames cracking under the torque of these little motors.
