    What's up everyone, I'm new to the site and I hope I will enjoy my stay while I am here. This will be my first motorized bike, due to money I'm going with the best prices I can find. I have decided to go with the Black Stallion 66cc motor from and as for the bike, I can't use my mountain bike due to the frame design and suspension, so I'm going for a Huffy 26" Beach Cruiser from Walmart. That's about where it stands at the moment and hope I can get some good advice from those that screwed up their first time around. :D

    Welcome to motoredbikes Malak.
    Please make sure the bike you pick has a front brake. I know guys do cruiser bikes a lot, and most lack decent stopping power because they lack a front brake.

    A question if I may

    I planned on front and rear, I was wondering though if the coaster brake still works as well after this kind of modification? Thanks for the concern!! :idea:

    Welcome to MBc

    IMO, the coaster brake is fine, as long as you have a hand brake also. Without a hand may have to rely on your "Fred Flintstones". :sweatdrop:

    Beware of the Walmart Huffy front fender. It WILL make you crash.
    The rest of the bike is just fine. :grin5:

    again.... Welcome

    I'll just take out the necessary metal with a Dremel tool, hehehe.
