(remove the 42T ring)

2. Install these... "Race Face Crank Arm Outer Tab Spacers" so you can tighten the chain ring bolts after you remove the 42T ring. @ $10.19 on Amazon

3. Change the tires out to "Super wide Crusher cruiser tires" (
SUNLITE - CLINCHER, TIRES SUNLT 26x3.5 BK/BK WIRE WH-STRIPE Product Code #: JBI-59672) @ $37.48 each on Cloud Electric

4. Handle bars and grips of your choice, plus a better seat.

So here are my costs:
$200 for bike
$28 for crank
$10.19 for crank spacers
$69.96 for tires
$8.50 Grips
$26.38 Handle Bars
$343.03 Total

Now with these changes it rides real nice and easy.
Draco, it looks killer with your upgrades!

I recently picked a few Beast's myself, my question for you is WHERE'S your motor? LOL...

P.S. Could you please share a direct link to where you purchased your upgrades, for us confusor illiterates...

Looking forward to your motorizing your Beast!!!

BTW, here's the link to my thread Stretching a Mongoose Beast to fit a Honda pitbike cloned engine in frame:

P.S. Builders check this thread for in depth info for Horizontal 4-stroke Honda crf50 Pitbike / Dirtbike / Atv engines:

These engines work best used for motorizing the Stretch Cruisers & Chopper builds.
