I found this 2013 Felt Cruiser on Craigslist. It has a few cosmetic blemishes, but is $75.

How are these for an HT kit build?
Will it fit this frame well, and how solid are these bikes? I haven't been to see it yet, but I'm considering it.
It looks pretty robust for a cruiser, and has 29" wheels.

Mongoose Hotshot is a great bike for the price you should replace the tires with some 29ers though 700cc wheels that come with it will work

I would pick that up quick!
I'm building a Bixby now, it's a good frame with better stuff than my cranbrook

I'm getting it tomorrow...I mean later today, LOL.
It's been sitting on Craigslist for almost a month. I'm surprised.
Thanks for the input.

That does look like a great deal. I'm not looking for a new bike though. I'm only looking at this Felt bike as a novel collector's item bike that isn't likely to come up at this price ever again, and it's 15 miles down the road from me :).
I think it's been ridden too much to have huge collector value like a mint bike would, so I don't feel like I'm ruining it by adding a kit motor.
I love the tires and fenders on it.
