Started with a Micargi GTS Mustang. Added a few extras: Dual pull brake lever, push button clutch, K&N style air filter, Baby-Bee tail light with visor, 9volt headlamp with visor. Made the motor mounts myself, went with u-bolts to preserve the frame. I'm not too big on drilling holes through the frame and wasn't quite sure that the forward engine placement would work. So far so good. Ordered a Nitrous Kit mainly for cosmetic purposes, with the style air filter I have it should be an easy

Not sure what size it is!! Either 35 or 40mm. Bought it on Ebay. It is made for Pocket bike applications. It has a rubber fitting on it so I was able to stretch it onto the carb. Search "Pocket Bike Parts" or "Air Filter" on Ebay.

I've been meaning to ask - the air filter - what size, part#, etc?

K&N Part#

I need one - with a K&N part# I can perhaps source equivalents as well.

Thanks!(^)

Took about one week to complete once I gathered all the parts. This is actually my second build. It is "Nice to Ride", I get compliments everywhere I go and have had a couple offers for it....upwards of $900. "Not For Sale"....but I can build another one!!

The bike gives me goose bumps! I really like the look that the stretched motorbikes have. The engine definitely looks better mounted towards the front.

Pablo, the air filter is for pocket bike applications. I bought it on Ebay, not sure what size it is...either 38-40mm.
