    There's a few guy's on here from KY... Do they still make baseball bats down there or did that go to China too???

    yeah, the louisville slugger is still made here. I've got several bikes/parts i'm considering using. i got a west coast chopper bike for $30 that i really wanna use for the most part. the problem i see first is that it has only the stock coaster brake & , as far as i can tell, no way to mount a disc brake or any other kind that i'm familiar with. i've seen other guys have done it with this bike & i want to find some ideas on how they did it. it doesn't help that i have no machining/welding equipment or know-how.... anybody got ideas for brakes on this ride?

    You might run into issues w/mounting the motor. I've seen other members get a special plate.

    i thought motor mounting might be an issue too. i'm just gonna go ahead and get a grubee soon &, if the chopper is too much trouble for mounting, i have several other bikes that may be easier to mount on. i just love the look of that bike and thought it would be super cool to motorize. i'll wait til i'm actually attempting to install b4 i start bugging people for help. but thanks to you guys for the warm welcomes!
