    Hi, I ordered a Staton FD for my old Electra alum. cruiser today. I picked the Zenoah G43l 41.5cc. 1.97 hp. I decided to use a 1.125 dia. drive roller. I think this should be good all around. Will send pictures when i get it. And let everyone know how it goes.

    I got my Staton FD with the Zenoah G430 engine today. Here is some pictures of the way it came.

    I got the Staton FD installed today and was able to take it for a ride to start breaking it in. It seams to be strong and i would say not to loud.

    I have ran 4 tanks trough the engine so far and it is great. I have ran some small hills with no problem. I been on some wet roads with no slip on the 1.125 drive roller. I am running the Electra Cruiser Retrorunner 26x 2.125 stock tires. I have always had good luck with these tires.
