  1. I found a BCA Merica Rover 1020 uni-lite 10 speed bike for 22 bucks....It seams to be heavyduty,but was wondering if anyone has heard of a BCA bike or know anything about them....I want to put a friction drive on my next build in the next couple of weeks and was thinking this would be a good bike for it....

    it would probally work but you really need wider tires to get a good grip thats why i'm going with a mtn bike with cruiser tires on it to get a better grip on the tire and roller...

    BCA seems vaguely familiar to me. But nothing more specific than that.

    Still, it seems to me that they go back to, roughly, my childhood.

    That would suggest that we're talking about a tough frame with narrow tubes.

    If I'm right, that would be perfect for motorizing.

    Wider wheels and tires can always be added.
