    Well, I have sold tons and tons of cranboobs, and now I have people in my area who really really want to see me producing really high end builds, so here is my first High end production bike, The Felt Magno, McGinnis Motor Bikes edition. So far, I just have the bike, a head light and my speedo, In the mail is a delorto carb, sbp expansion chamber exhaust, Ridleys $200 motor mounts, Phantom bikes chain tensioner, Raw 66 cc motor. Manic sprocket adaptor and pirates 40t sprocket,A temp gauge from JNMotors as well as the JNMotors cc-x port exhaust manifold , I since the magno is steel framed, I dont want to make the top tank into a gas tank ( very small) instead, im going to hide a little square 1/2gal pocket bike tank inside a leather saddle bag and mount the whole thing to a hidden seat post rack ( trust me, as weird as it sounds, I know it will look good,lol) and im going to use a heavy duty "gold finger" atv accelerator. total build cost? $1400. Going to price her at about $1900, and if she doesnt sell, ill keep her because I am inlove with this bike. here are pics so far, keep ya posted.

    As far as I know, I am the last McGinnis in my family since my uncle died a few years back, but, you dont find this same spelling of the name often, so who knows, we may be related

    Looks great. I am however, hopelessly confused as to what makes those mounts worth $200. I am open to education, though not optimistically, I admit.

    Are they worth $200? well,no, but they are hands down the best mounts money can buy, they are mega heavy duty, they are a work of art, they are offset ( a must on a felt) and they have some heavy duty rubber shims that dont just reduce vibrations, they eliminate them, I had the bike out for a test ride this afternoon and it is so smooth, no vibrations at all. Its gonna be hard to sell this one!

    I thought about a 4 stroke, but I like the look of a 2 better. Phantom makes beautiful bikes, however, mine is faster, has better parts and is cheaper ;)

    Good luck finding one. They dont make them for the US market any more, some places online are selling the magno for as high as $1100!!! I have about 5 of them in stock, if you want one, I can let one go for $600 plus shipping

    Good looking bike. Interesting that the sweeping fender supports or struts or whatever they are called are the same as on my 1939 Hiawatha.
