    You can use the one you have. The only advice I'd give you is to look at the downtube on whatever bike you are interested in using. Many bikes now do not use a round tube, they are more oval or egg shaped. Like the wallyworld Next bicycles. Other than that, let your freak flag fly. The only other thing is please, PLEASE, PLEASE. Clean up your cables. You don't have to trim them, but please keep them from flailing about like a peacock's tail. They can be routed without having to cut them down and look tidy.

    That bike looks cool from the get go... I'm sure when it's done you will get thumbs up left and right. I don't think I would leave the child seat on the bike with a motor on it. You never know if something will go wrong, crashing by yourself is one thing, but with a child on the handle bars is another. Keep us posted with pics of the finished product. Here's some pics of my first cruiser bike.

    I rock a 65cc kit from thatsdax. My buddy has a 50cc and it has some get up and go in that too. I wouldn't believe the vendor if he says it is 80cc's. I think the average size is about 65cc. Of course I may be wrong. 60-65cc is a good middle of the road type of size.
