    Found this on my local Craigslist. Is it worth picking up for that price to either do a build or just for the **** of it? I've never rode a cruiser bike. Always road bike and mountain.

    It is good for either a build or just pedaling around town.

    I looked at the pics but I couldn't see any brakes. How hard would it be to put some one if it doesn't have any? Thanks for the input. I might pick it up.

    It has a coaster brake on the back. I highly recommend adding a brake caliper to the front.
    Brakes are easy to install.

    There's a lot of people who build motor bikes with these just look around. I plan getting my kit tomorrow (/today) and working on it. the one thing I messed with so far is the handle bar, and just to let you know the bolts and nuts that come hold it together are cheap, I stripped the nut trying to tightening it. great looking bike though, almost everyone that see it says they want a bike after seeing it, cant wait to get the motor on. I'll be posting stuff soon.

    Hmmm...$60. It's cheaper than at Walmart.
