    Is it a cruiser? I was on Walmarts site a few days ago I don't remember seeing that bike.

    COOL! One thing to consider, that coaster brake will need some help. You'll need a front brake too of some sort. These motors can get rockin and rollin... You'll need braking front and rear. So be safe ok?

    I went to a Target, the Schwinn Jaguars and Beach Combers, both 7 speeds, seem to be the best for conversion.

    Coaster brakes by themselves are iffy, no such thing as stopping on a dime.

    I would definitely add a front brake. but it'd be nice to have a coaster brake so no worries about a brake handle on the left.
