The engine will run quicker, faster, smoother, better after it is fully broken in.
How many miles are on it so far?

Edit: keep an eye on your rear spokes, they look a bit spindly for an MB.
If they were to break it would ruin your day for sure.

That's pretty.

If you're getting 28MPH on a brand new build, you're fine. Ride it a couple hundred miles, and it'll get a little better.

Reinforce the fenders where the tabs and arms meet the actual fenders, or they'll vibrate apart and wreck you badly.

For front brakes, you can add a caliper brake (inexpensive), or a vbrake bracket and vbrakes (a little more expensive), or a drum brake (either laced into that rim with new spokes, or you can get a whole wheel from Husky for about $100).
