    I'm Terry, I'm retired, and have questions. Looking for a bike to motorize. Walmarts do not seem to have much quality from what I've seen on this forum. Some of the other cheap Chinese bikes seem to be in the same catagory. I want to build a retro, WWI era motorized bike. I'm also short so thought a 24" would fit and look better. Any suggestions for a new bike to buy. Thanks for a great forum.

    Welcome to the hobby! This is interesting:

    1. My name is Terry also
    2. I'm retired also
    3. I grew up in Western PA...Meadville

    As for Walmart. The weak spots are the welds from what I have read. I ain't never done any welding but it seems like the welds could just be reinforced some and solve the problem. I'm sure some of the guys will jump in and help you though.
