Really? Felt steel framed cruisers are great quality. Look at scotto's unmodified $250 Felt Bixby which is powered by a 20 HP 212cc motor and raced hard.
Just got back from the PO on my pedal Felt V12 coaster brake bike that will get a motor. It is rock solid.
There are other inexpensive steel framed cruiser bikes out there that are plently strong and will take a gas motor just fine.
The Target Schwinn Jaguar is a good example of a cheap strong steel framed bike. Just look at 2doors bikes.
