Hey guys, this is my second post, but I still need a good bit of help!

    First things first, I really like this bike, except that I would like it to have a 49cc, 4-stroke kit on it. So... a road bike with cruiser-style handlebars, correct?

    So, do any of you know anything about this bike? A 1989 Schwinn Prelude? Would a 49cc, 4-stroke kit fit on this, and then I could put some cruiser-style handlebars on it?

    And if so... does anybody have any suggestions for kits? Or for any other bikes on CL in that area, maybe? My budget is: I want to spend around $500 to $600 to get started, bike and kit, and I wouldn't mind a couple other small purchases down the road a bit to make it better/more reliable. This will be my main form of transportation, and not a side project, so I am trying to buy quality, and do it right!

    Also, I've been told I should probably get something with a steel frame?

    Sort of a vague post, and pretty similar to my other post, but I just am still having trouble deciding on what I should do, exactly.

    Any and all help is very, greatly appreciated!!

    On a lot of four stroke builds you have to use the wider pedal crank, do some measuring before you decide.

    Did you ever build this bike? If not and you still would like to have one built let me know I can build you one.
