    ok so i have a micargi panther that was a piece of work. the top rails that go back to the rear drop outs snapped completly in half and even the bottom tube of the frame was broke only after a month of havin it motorized. what i did was had a buddy weld 2 gusset plates to the bottom tube where the front motor mount is and put a nice thick plate over the rear rails remounted the motor and not a single vibration i beilieve the best way to mount these lil china girls is to first strengthen up the bike ur putting it on. i used to have problems with my chain hittin my white walls when it was spaced about a half inch now its barely 2mm spaced and a loose chain it doesnt even wanna hop around at all im tellin u this is the way to go guys im goin in on sunday to reinforce more of the framexct2

    Yours is not the first report of Micargi frames cracking. Use the search. key word, Micargi, and you can see and read what others have found.
    Your fix sounds strong but keep an eye on the other critical places, (what isn't critical on a bike?) and make sure nothing else lets go. Be careful.
