    Plan is for a 160cc 4 Stroke. I want something off the shelf. I wish I had time to search out a vintage American bike, but this will have to do.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    They are both very good bikes. Much higher quality than any Huffy. Strong frames and a lot of space to work with. Micargi makes good bikes that get motorized a lot as well. Depends on the style you like, but there are tons of good options out there.

    Yea, micargis are nice. I'm currently doing a 125cc build in one, plenty of room for the engine. Downside is that although the frames are great, the bikes are made with cheap components and assembled by posturing baboons.

    Although it doesn't lend itself easily to the larger motors I need, I like the Electra. The frame is better made than most bikes in the price range and I will be replacing most everything else.
