Civi Cheetah Accessories Reviewed and Installed

The first thing I added to my Cheetah was the stock fenders and rear rack. Although well made and heavy duty they are a bit pricey. Be prepared to drop about $200. on these. The taillight that comes with the rear rack is kind of lame. A single non flashing LED with a non rechargeable AA battery is not impressive.
A taillight that could plug into the factory harness and battery pack with multiple LED's and flash patterns would be an awesome option.
The rack comes with a single 3 bungee strap and hook system that is nicely designed and works well for strapping items to the rack.
The metal fenders are full size, well made and installed nicely with the included hardware. They are painted matt black and match the forks, headlight, and rims nicely.
For me it completes the look of the bike and serve a functional purpose on and off road.
As for the taillight, I shopped around at the many choices and chose a Meilan X5, a modern sleek looking LED combination turn signal unit with wireless remote control and USB rechargeable batteries.
Also has lasers that shoot at the ground marking your safety zone.
Really! Although a little gimmicky the Taillight is bright with multiple functions and works as a brake light under hard braking. About $35. on Amazon.
I'll cover my mirrors and new gel seat in my next post. Keep it upright and enjoy the ride!

Greetings, my mirrors are solid and I haven't experienced any shaking. Thanks for the compliment on my photos. I love taking photos and seeing others as well. Have about 5,000 photos on my phone.
Best regards... 🤗
