    I live in the U.S..
    Three questions:
    Where is the best place on the web to buy a kit,
    Is it worth it to get a 4 stroke instead of the standard 2 stroke,
    What is/where can I buy a good cruiser to install the kit on?
    Any help is appreciated.

    You will almost get a different answer from almost every member.
    Two stroke China girls are the most popular because they are the most affordable and easiest to install.
    China girls are really cheap on EBay, but you will likely get no service if something is broken when the package arrives.
    I recommend building a 2 stroke from one of our site sponsors. If they do somebody wrong, you will see it posted quickly on this site. Put your motor kit on a good steel cruiser or MTN bike. Used, brand name mountain bikes are sturdier than the new cheap ones. If a new Walmart bike is the only bike within your budget, get one but understand that you may need to replace the crank bearings and wheel set within a year.
    Ride your 2 stroke kit for a year and then decide if you want to shell out the money for a four stroke, shift kit, etc. Just my $0.02
