I don't believe weight has anything to do with it {up to a certain point}. I'm 218 at 5'10" and one of my bikes is a stock grubee 66, sick bike parts expansion chamber pipe, and 40 tooth sprocket on a stretch cruiser and that bike goes a good 38mph. I don't always roll at that speed, but it's nice for lane changes or cell phone dummies. Several guys I ride with are over the 200lbs mark with basically stock motors and they all roll over 30mph. It's really the combination of components on the bike as a whole that will give you speed. Good luck
