    i was offered a 70’s amf voyager beach cruiser. Im concerned about the rear drop outs and if they will hold up, o havent seen it in person yet. What do you guys think, is it worth slapping a motor on?

    That bike should motorize just fine, as long as the pedal crank clears the crankcase.

    I'd be concerned about having no brakes.

    You can add BMX side pull front brakes, I did on both of my beach cruisers. With good quality brake pads they stop well, with only coaster brakes if the pedal chain comes off you will be in trouble

    Take apart the rear brake & pack it with fresh grease!! (& of coarse add a front brake)
