    Welcome aboard.

    In a nutshell, you want either a cruiser type bike or a simple mountain bike. (No rear suspension)

    Imagine the bike that Archie Andrews or Beaver Cleaver or Richie Cunningham might have ridden. Are you old enough to even recognize those names? If not, then picture a paper boy anywhere from the 1930s to the 1960s or so. That type of bike would be today's beach cruiser. Curved tubes.

    The straight tubed early, and modern, mountain bikes also work well. I don't recognize the bike that you mentioned above. But it sounds like one of these. It ought to do just fine.

    I've built that exact bike before. You should have an easy build as long as you take your time with the sprocket mount.
    Be sure it's centered on the hub.
    I welded the chain tensioner to the frame for security.
    If you don't have access to a welder, most muffler shops will tack it to the frame for you once you get it installed.
    Search "chain tensioner" for lots of info!

    Howdy & welcome!!

    That bike looks perfect for almost any kind of build you're going to do.......2 cycle, 4 cycle, shifter, friction.......

    Best of luck in your build!!
