So I just recently bought a 79cc Monster 80 Bike Engine complete kit and need recommendations as to what kind of bicycle I should put it on. I'm trying to decide if I should put it on a mountain bike or a beach cruiser. I'm leaning more towards a mountain bike for the fact that it might reduce the vibrations from the motor. Any feedback on this situation would be greatly appreciated thanks!

assuming both bike type fit the engine, here is my view on both.

mountain
- better stock brakes (assume cruiser has coaster)
- multi-gear rear sprocket in case you ever want to try to jackshaft engine
- might have front fork and rear shock

cruiser
- better looking bike for engines
- usually bigger inframe space for engines
- inferior stock brakes if only coaster
- i think cruisers are actually bigger than most mountain bikes and might absorb vibrations better

Go best of both worlds. Get a decent mountain bike and toss all the parts on a beach cruiser frame.
