    Nice sleek looking bike. What can you tell us about that muffler? Is it custom made? Is it quiet?

    your bike looks sweeeeeet. is that a Schwinn Jaguar? i'm digging that exhaust too, looks cool with the heat wrap.

    also awesome that you've been riding it for four years- that speaks volumes for reliability. where did you get your kit from?

    Thanks for all the great comments.

    The bike is a Huffy cruiser bought at Wal-Mart. It originally had fenders and white wall tires. The engine kit (55cc) was purchased from Simpson motorbikes. I bought the muffler used from a local scooter dealer. I think it might be for a pocket bike, but I’m not sure. I hacked the original muffler off and attached a pipe to extend towards the back and attached the new muffler. I think it’s quiet as or quieter than the original. It definitely has more power. It did run lean with the new pipe even on the richest setting. So I put a few small washers under the c-clip to raise the needle and it was good to go.
