Default Potholes, Bumps, etc.

Hi all,

Are rough streets, bumps, potholes, etc. a problem for mounting and keeping the motor attached to the bicycle? Does excessive jarring and bumps damage anything with the motor? My daily commute of 5 miles round trip has a number of rough areas that cannot be avoided and I was wondering if I am going to have trouble with this if and when I put one of these builds together.

I've heard tales of exhaust pipes dropping off and intake manifolds cracking off.
Case mounting bolts busting, frames cracking, and YRR just broke his front end.
Rough life in the gutter! lol
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
