Default Bike Choice

Hi all. I am new here and have posted in the new members and also the cruiser threads. I am finishing my first bike and have a brand new motor left over. I want to build another and see just how cheaply I can do it. Amazon has a Cranbrook delux in blue, nice looking bike. I know it would work as I see several people here use them. It is a single speed.

They also have a Pacific Shorewood for about the same money. The shorewood has 7 gears and would also come with the front brake. I have not read anything about the Pacific here. Is it any good or should I stick with the cranny. Open to other suggestions as well.

I started without the benefit of this forum and could not have finished without the advice here. So I am going to consult here Before I do anything motorized bicycle related in the future. You better get ready for lots of questions.

One more thing. Since I have the motor do you know of a "kit" with all that is needed minus the motor, or should I just try and buy piece by piece.

Thanks again, David
