Haha, I think you are paraphrasing myself there. The exact quote is on my blog and is "First thing I did was take it apart, cut a hole in the tank and void the warranty!"
I think you have found the right place! If I were you I would look to increase the budget a bit. First thing you will want to do to that 1903 (Great bike!) is improve the brakes. A coaster brake all by itself isn't really good enough in the opinion of most of us here.
Let me know if I can help.
