    Whats the best and easiest Bicycle to use with the silver slant 66cc kit?
    I have bought a brand new bike from Walmart. I had to return it because it would not work. Im looking for a Bicycle in the $70-145 range and something i will not have to modify.

    I'm not 100% sure because i don't personally own one.
    But i think the huffy cranbrook seems to be the choice of a lot of people.
    I think that these engine kits will bolt right into a cranbrook, but i'm not 100% positive on that.
    My bikes with engines are built with 20" frames, and i have never built a 26" bike.

    A bike in that price range can work, but your still going to break parts, the rims will go first.
    try a slightly better bike like the mercardi.

    That's what i was thinking too...parts will break on the cheaper bikes.
    you may be better off looking for a used, higher quality bike with better wheels and a better frame. used means you can piossibly get it cheap.
    you could buy a cheaper bike new, buit you'll eventually have to replace the wheels anyway.

    If you are capable of paiting and polishing, look for a used high quality bike that may be a lttle beat up.
    Look past the scratches and stuff, and re-paint it / re-build it yourself.
    I just bought a 1972 schwinn lil chic 20" girls bike for $30.00.
    it's all original with the original paint, tires, seat , fenders....everything is original.
    I got it for $30.00 because it has scratches in the paint, and the wheels have surface rust on them.
    It's a 100% correct and original bike that has never been taken apart.
    Granted, it's a girls bike, but i can easily sell it for more than what i paid for it.
    if you can look past the grime, dirst and scratches, sometimes you can find a diamond in the rough for cheap.

    i don't really mind about the rims and stuff right now. i can always upgrade. i don't really have alot of money to spend right now. and also i am in Maine and it wont be used that much because of winter coming so it will be put up.

    and i was thinking a bike with gears would be nice too. then i would not have to modify the bearing caps or anything. a
