    Hi Everybody,

    My friends just purchased me a Skyhawk Gt5 66cc engine kit from Bike Berry for my birthday, :). My question is what type of bike is best for this motor kit? I was looking at cruiser bikes from Walmart. I can't spend alot because I have limited funds. I now have a mountain bike, but I know the frame is too small. I saw the men's 26 inch Ocean Pacific, is that the style I need? Thank you so much for any suggestions, this is all new to me. Thanks Again!! dance1

    You could check your local paper, or Craigslist/Kijijji, you'd get more for your money. Remember, even if you have to settle for a cheapy bike now, that doesn't mean you can't save up for something you really like and swap the kit onto it later on.

    Grats on the level-up btw, good friends you have there ;)

    If you're going to get a cheap cruiser brand new, do yourself a favor and shop for one that has front and rear vbrakes instead of just a coaster. You'll have less hassle with installing the sprocket, and you'll have decent brakes.

    As mentioned, craigslist is also good for finding a platform used. Don't forget Goodwill, Salvation Army, or your local police auctions.
