    I was looking on Grubee Inc. and they have some bikes with a gas tank built into the frame. They are nice looking cruisers too. they only wholesale them and it looks like they will only sell 260 of them at a time, so I was wondering if anyone knows where to get one of these bikes.
    It is a chinese make: fulihua gt-2

    thanks :)

    I emailed USABikes and the reply was that he would offer "Just the Frame" when he figured out a price.

    Where are you located?

    The frames do not have brackets for bolting the engine to.

    bought my Grubee Gen II motor from him, (the local CL). He's a good guy. Lives a couple miles from my house. I'm considering buying either the GT1 or GT2 kit from him now.
