Does Anyone Own a Retrospec Harper with a Coaster Brake?

Thought I'd post here as well. I want a single-speed with a Coaster Brake. Basically a cruiser without the cruiser body position. Love the simplicity of one speed and a coaster but want to be able to stand on the pedals.

They are on sale for $180 but Retrospec seems to get a lot of hate on here. I figured that these bikes are simple enough that they really can't screw them up too badly with cheap parts. Am I wrong? If not this one, are there other suggestions?

No money to be made on that unless you can get them wholesale. If you can buy them for $100 you should be able to sell for $150.
