    I can only buy a bike from Wal-Mart, I want a cruiser style but whatever is easier to install is better. I have already bought a motor kit, engine powered headlight/tail light and speedometer.

    I like the Point Beach cruiser. Bike #3 i think has a bad seat post/ lower tube angle, I'm not sure. My bike is a Walmart Mongoose Paver. I would not choose it again. Despite being a 28" bike there's barely enough room for the motor and I have to run the carb off to the side, there no way to fit it in the stock location.

    Just watch those fenders, find the stickie on fenders that have folded up in the wheel. I have plastic fenders :p Carry a small bag of tools and parts, especially nuts and bolts. When your first starting out check the bolts on all the bike, even if it's just to make sure.

    Whatever bike you get- get one with 2 brakes.

    what is your budget, because you might be able to find a better bike for close to the same. Granted, Schwinn is better than the average Wal-Mart Cranbrook. Micargi's are popular for motorizing and in the general price range of the bikes you posted:
