Default Re: FINALLY DONE! THANK YOU ALL! Check this out...

I remember the old Tempus I built on a Micargi Huntington frame. Cruising at 20 mph wasn't so bad, so I tried 25 mph. I got used to that, so I went up to 30 mph. With a few new vibrations it was not real comfortable. I think I went as high as (what my speedometer thought was) 32 mph. At about that speed it felt like the bike was not game for this, and all sorts of bad images were popping into my head, and I was sure the brakes would be insubstantial for the speed I was going.

The man who once did over 130 mph in a slightly modified Datsun 260Z, does not feel good going over 25 on his little 2-smoker.
