    The engine alone was probably worth its asking price!

    I just purchased another Micargi Mustang!

    This one is slightly used and I found it locally via craigslist!

    Hello again!
    Busy as ever!

    Black Betty is doing well!

    A lot of trouble-free miles on it now.

    I drive it to work once in a while, and it gets too much attention!

    Everybody is wanting me to wrench on their contraption, or build them a new one!


    Ive built 3 bikes for other customers, in the the past 2 months.

    Crazy busy!

    Like I mentioned previously, I scored another Micargi Mustang.

    This one was used and I found it for sale locally for $200.

    Not sure if I will use a china girl, or a 4 stroker?

    It will be a winter project, as Im too busy right now with other peoples projects.

    I will start a new thread soon!

    from experience,
    your chain will flop around enough (due to it's length) that it will start chewing into the upper chainstay
    I notched the tube and welded in a piece of steel to cover/reinforce the notch
    I have almost 70,000 on my Mustang now :)

    Bill, you are correct.
    The chain will rub the frame if I fail to keep it adjusted...
    However, I do have a chain tensioner on it that does a good job, and once in a while, I need to slide the rear wheel aft, to increase tension.
    Ive put a lot of miles on it now, (no way near 70,000!)so the chain adjustments are less often now that the chain has stretched!

    Well, according to my GPS, I have exceeded 200 miles!
    I think its time to pull the cylinder and do a little porting work!

    I'm very interested to see pics as I've been wanting a new gas tank for my bike.

    Looks good I like it. I'm kinda stuck with the kit tank on mine unless I get the seat post keg style one
