    Take some time reading posts and all your questions will be answered. But in a nut shell that combo should be fine, but take time to do some research before you order any thing so you can make a good choice that will fit what your needs/wants are.

    I think the Chef gave you some good advice...slow down and look around. Don't be in a hurry to lay out that hard earned money. There are a lot of companies out there, and a lot of seasoned veterans on this forum willing to help. Read the posts and ask around. I'm sure you will find the combination you like.

    People I have searched on the internet and the bikes I found that I like are this ones-
    The Greenline 24'' Mens Bike Midnight Blue(2010)- http://cgi.ebay.com/GREENLINE-MENS-...-BICYCLE-BLUE-NEW_W0QQitemZ380149355633QQcmdZ

    And This other one-
    http://cgi.ebay.com/MICARGI-26-TOUCH-MENS-BICYCLE-BIKE-BEACH-CRUISER_W0QQitemZ380150540494QQcmdZ

    I really like the Greenline Bike and I am not 100% sure if this Engine kit could fit into the bike-
    http://www.zoombicycles.com/eShop/B...mited-Edition-80cc-ZB-Stealth-Engine-Kit.html

    That Engine Kit+Racing Carburetor since I want a bike with Torque and Speed I will then probably add the racing add on exhaust muffler I have seen here on Puerto Rico and my brother bought that muffler it practically boost the motor it gives like 10-15mph more...

    I don't know much about sprokets but the 44 tooth one seems ok I guess or I should get a smaller one?

    One suggestion a lot of people recommend against coaster brakes I don't have them so I can't say for shore how they are. And bang for the buck I would get the expansion chamber exhaust before a carb and the slant head engine has some more power and is a newer design which tends to come with better bearings.

    Thanks for the info,So that slant head engine is better than the old design? And about brakes which do you think is best? Because for me coaster brakes work fine...

    Disc brake are the best, and Ive never used coaster brakes but I've read some posts about them not being able to deal with MB speeds. Try a search on coasters and slant heads to see what others think.

    Friction drive is the most dependable and easiest to install setup for a newbee.

    Combined with a quality utility engine is solid as a rock.

    If you go with HT kit good luck, you will need a lot of it.

    You can hardly find a horror story this and about friction drive, but there is tons of horror stories about HT kits and engines on this and the other forum.

    Bottom line is:

    YOU GOT WHAT YOU PAID FOR

    I get the idea but I want a bike to look more like a motorcicle and not something that looks weird with the motor and the thing that spins the wheel...It looks ugly for me.About brakes I could have coaster on the back and a V brake infront,I can't afford the disc brakes......My budget for this proyect is 400 bucks....
    And what I have combined give me a total of-
    $387.90

    THis-http://cgi.ebay.com/MICARGI-26-TOUCH-MENS-BICYCLE-BIKE-BEACH-CRUISER_W0QQitemZ380150540494QQcmdZ
    and the motor-
    http://www.zoombicycles.com/eShop/B...mited-Edition-80cc-ZB-Stealth-Engine-Kit.html

    then I will buy some brakes I already got the cables and stuff.

    You will never be able to make a bicycle look as motorcycle.

    If you want this "thing" you are ridin' look as motorcycle, buy a motorcycle not a motorized bike.

    Average person can tell a difference between bicycle and motorcycle.

    LOL

    One thing about a Coaster Brake (I am giggling as I type this,) I rode a coaster brake bike for many years. One thing I can tell you for sure is that, no matter how fast you are going, if you stomp on it, the thing will lock-up your rear wheel in a "heartbeat". If you are ready for the consequences, go for it...if not, stay away. I can still see poor Jerry Kingston going "airborne into the woods and down the ravine thru the bushes and bouncing off of trees"...and that was a long, long time ago. <roflmao>

    Thank the Lord he only ended up with bups, cuts and scratches, but his motorbike was just a twisted mess of metal that caught fire at the bottom of the ravine.

    Just thought I'd give you something to think about when considering brakes...

    I will probably add a reducing speed brake on the front wheel and use the coaster brake for stoping,I already bought the bike from wallmart :p the only thing I need is the motor kit and mount.
    This is the bike I bought I will receive it between day 12-19 of this month-http://wallmart.com/ip/26-Men-s-Schwinn-Delmar-Cruiser/13398149
    I like the coaster brake because it actually brakes good,but not stomping on it hehehhe if you press it to hard you will make the tire stop in an instant.So If I am riding on the road and I want to reduce speed a hand brake on the front wheel should do the job.
    Now I just need to wait for some money so I can buy the motor kit.
    I think I will buy this one-
    http://www.zoombicycles.com/eShop/B...mited-Edition-80cc-ZB-Stealth-Engine-Kit.html

    I am from Puerto Rico and I have searched and asked lots of sites and the cheapest on shipping is this one they charge $40 for shipping to PR and the motor kit cost 129.99 so it will be $170.
    And this other one cost $164-
    http://www.kingsmotorbikes.com/grub...lant_head_black_finish_bicycle_engine_kit.htm

    I think the shipping is included.
