Default Re: Top speed?

I'm having a bit of trouble bedlieving these claims- granted my 66 is nearing 8 years now and still has a 6mm stud bottom end- but with an aluminum billet and updated stock NT Speed carb, NARROW tires 27 x 1 1/4 on aluminum wheels-

I can't get much over 35 on the analogue speedo

with a 34 alloy sprock directly bolted to a wide flanged fixie hub

She cruises pretty well at 30, though the vibrations could be better, and I'm thinking about a newer mount-

but once you get to 35 it doesn't feel there's much left, and I;m not worried about trying either.
