    I really like this 29" Macargi Fatal Love bike with a 4-stroke on it.
    It has a better top speed with 29" wheels and with the little pedal sprocket it's easy to help with some easy pedaling if you find yourself stopped at the bottom of a hill.


    With a little tinkering it doesn't even need a drive side tensioner but I use one for ease of adjustment for the buyer.

    Though the stock exhaust is OK, a non-EPA 2-stroke muffler goes right on and it makes a power difference.
    Another real power boost is the NGK 7544 (CR7HIX) Iridium spark plug.

    The bike only had a coaster brake so I put a pair of independent C-brakes on it so it has 3 brakes.


    Now if I could come up with snap in 1+ gallon tank in the top cavity and loose the peanut tank it would sure look as good as it run.

    An other great looking build, KC. I have wanted to build a Micargi Falcon. Its somewhat of a stretch cruiser. I don't think a 4 stroke HS will fit in the Falcon frame.

    Thanks Wheel.

    I don't think a 4-stroke will fit in the Falcon either.


    Even the Pantera is a tight fit, that's why I like the 29".

    I really like the look of this build what I don't like is the HuaSheng engine they are a cheap Chinese knockoff of the Honda GXH 50. I don't trust Chinese manufacturing it's always very poor quality.

    Well, I have 17 builds with the HS 142 and not a single failure in 3 years, but you go ahead and pay the extra $75 for the Honda name even though it was probably made just down the street from the HS factory.

    I am hell bent on getting some in-frame gas tanks made for this frame but my 3D guys software won't save in the local 3D printing outfits file format.
