So I'm going to be doing a build with a GX200/Predator 212 clone, and I'm looking for a decent frame to start with (I already have wheels/brake/fork/saddle all figured out). I'm looking at either a Micargi Mustang or Puma frame (easy to find cheaply online). Both are the same price, but I'm unsure of the room for mounting an engine on each one, I can't find any dimensions for either frame.

Does anybody know which one will give me more room to play with?

Neither of those are good frames to start with. You'll be better off with an American frame, either a chicago schwinn or a newer frame like a felt or dyno

I have the puma, you can check out my build thread to see how much room there is for a China girl to gauge if the 212 will fit. I believe the mustang has more room. Check out a thread called murder in the stretch section to see how the China girl fits his bike. The puma has a weak spot at the seat post( ask me how I found out). Again you can see what I did to fix that. The mustang doesn't have that problem. Good luck with whatever you choose.
