Welcome to the forum. It is just my opinion, of course, but I think the Huffy's look like the old whizzers. Not the cranbrooks, although they are very similar, i think the closest is the Huffy Nel Lusso.

As for the motor type, I haven't seen any that are belt driven, but I am still relatively new at this. I'm only on my 4th build, and my other 3 were all chain driven.
