Default Re: My 20's Style Touring Build

Ah crap... just found of my frame is misalinged, the motor chain leans to the right when mounted straight on the frame and measurements confirmed that it is about 1/2inch off balance. If I get a new frame and fenders I can't afford to try out the 2-speed setup. Although reading through the archives on here it appears 35mph is possible with a 44t, it was substantiated (videos by a senior member, not the "OMG 40MPH LOL11111" types). However, it does free up money for fenders! This could be a quite vintage build, maybe something like a 1910 Pope Motorcycle?
Motorcycles, Motor-bicycles and bicycles- two wheels and the open air is all I need.
