    Hi,

    I purchased the Flying Horse 66CC kit.

    The problem I have is deciding on the bike. I want to get a cruiser that will not give me too much problems on my first build.

    I'm considering the Micargi Pantera 26". I want to add fenders and a front brake.

    I was told that a 24" rear wheel will not work. I wanted the Electra Sparker Special 3i (I know pricey) but it has a 24" back wheel.

    I've had a hard time deciding on the bike. Any suggestions on the Micargi or other recommendations would be appreciated.

    Allen

    I guess my questions would be...

    1. Is the Micargi Pantera a solid candidate and can a front brake be installed. Disk brakes sure would be nice. The fender should be a no brainer.

    2. Can a 24" rear wheel be installed.

    3. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

    thanks,
    Allen

    Welcome to the forum. You may be better off finding a used electra, nirve or older schwinn cruiser. The newer bargain cruiser frames have developed cracks on occasion when motorized. iThe frame tubing has thicker walls in the older bikes. I have heard second hand of cracks in Micargi frames but I have never actually seen a post from a victim. The Micargi Janos comes with 24in wheels, I think. There are a few Micargi falcons on this site.
