    I have a frame very similar to that and I love it. Don't waste your $$ on the fenders. Before you even take the engine out of the box, read up on what needs to be done to the engine before installing, and the proper way of mounting that engine to the frame...take my word.

    Here is some good reading for a NOOB.... My profile has plenty of pictures in the photo albums.

    Thanks big Al. I will read up on them before I by. So far it looks like the Grubee skyhawk kit is my best bet for the mid priced kits? Any other reccomendations for the motor kit? I am fairly familiar with the chinese 2 strokers as I have chinese pocketbikes that are 47cc. I am hoping some of my parts will fit these motors like air filters, reeds, jets, etc.. I have most of that stuff ready to drop in.

    Is there a certain kit style I need for a cruiser frame like this? I want the black motor kit to go with a matte black bike.

    And AL.fisherman, what type of fishing do you do. I am an avid saltwater angler sponsored by a couple small comapnies and lure makers here in San Diego.
