    Sixthreezero Cruiser Bike W/Massive Mid-Frame Space!

    I would run Mag wheels since the rims use sealed bearings and can take the torque. The rear sprocket on mine is a 34-tooth and the CVT is a game changer since the torque range is pretty uniform across the rpm band. The acceleration is wicked and can throw you off the bike if you aren't watching...

    This thing looks like fun and the only thing I would change if I was to build something like a nice build you have here is the engine combination. I would try to shoe-horn in a Predator 212cc engine. :) Thanks for some ideas and it's a real good build! Dennis

    Sixthreezero Cruiser Bike W/Massive Mid-Frame Space!

    Not yet, I ran out of oxygen for the brazing torch and I mean to weld a plate into the frame. The 212cc engines like to break things but they are good for road use. I'm running a real Japanese VM22 Mikuni carb on mine with the governor removed along with the low-oil sensor removed. The factory...

    That Lifan probably has a transmission that is geared? I know the Lifan 125cc has a transmission and that would be a good setup on a bike as long as you have the room for the engine.

    Sixthreezero Cruiser Bike W/Massive Mid-Frame Space!

    I've had thee Sixthreezero extended wheel base model with the 212cc engine and the CVT on it for over 2 years with no problems with the frame. Forget about using the in-barrel cassette on a ManicMechanic hub coupler, the small bearings on the hub won't take the power. I had to go to magwheels...

    Thanks Rick, the gas mileage and fun is good plus it gets addictive messing around with them, building and learning something. All you fellas really help newcomers with their problems. Some of my friends are stuck on cars and I've been there and done that and all they will get you are tickets. A...

    Dan, is that the "HuaSheng 49cc 4-Stroke" engine? I've got one of them on a Micargi "Touch" bike and it's been a real good engine. I'm sure you can get it going so you can take it for a ride. Dennis

    Weather is rainy here today so there's not riding. :mad: I've been trying to get some miles on a new engine and can't get much done outside this AM and PM. I've just about gotten caught in the rain this last few weeks and have been lucky and yesterday I ran into town with it and got back just in...
