    Bill,
    Studying that frame but not knowing your weight and the riding surfaces you usually travel, I've added a couple of gussets where I would add them if I were building that bike. The red ones for sure and the purple one unless you can incorporate some strengthening in your motor mount. I'd probably use 1/4" plate but 3/16" would suffice, I'm sure. That is an interesting looking chassis and should make a great looking cruiser. Keep us informed.

    This is where I would gusset it.
    :edit: Dammit! I'm too slow! rotfl

    But my gussets are fancier! :p

    Bill,

    I think you and I are looking to the same thing here, or at least real similar.
