No problem with my brakes. I can lock the rear wheel at full speed sitting on the seat and I weigh 250lbs.
As far as a child seat...I'm thinking about building a rail setup for using it to tow another motorbike sometimes and building a removable seat for it to be used as a people hauler also. I have several people interested in a trailer that can haul adult people, so its worth looking into.
I'm interested in the payload capacity. It would be fun, I think to start making these bikes pull some serious loads.
