Default took a long break now on to my second build

well it's been a long time since i've been on these forums. after wrecking my first build twice, i want to come back and build another but fix all the weaknesses of my first one.
i used a grubee gt5 on my first build, now i'm stepping it up to a 212cc predator
i also need to get an old schwinn cruiser or other older bike, i might stretch it some
i plan on disc brakes in the front, so if you guys could give me recomendations for front hubs/forks that would be great
are there any freehubs with a 50t or 56t sprocket built in? i really don't like the clamp to the spokes thing or the coaster brakes
what are some good strong rims? I plan on some heavy gauge spokes
my final question. i feel that the throttle handle/cable that come in the kits are rather cheap feeling and a very weak point, does anyone make better ones or can you use one of a motorcycle?

it's great to be back, somehow i just got back into the motor biking mood after about 6 months of not even touching mine
meanwhile i plan on doing something like this to my existing bike

There's three things you need to exceed in life...
if you have to loose one, loose the gun.
if you have to loose another, loose the smile
but never loose your plan.
