    How do you like the kit? Has it been reliable under pressure?

    I have been very busy this summer and have not had a chance to do much riding. I did take the bike out and rode about 20 miles this week and it did great. Lost my air filter somewhere along the way, manage to adapt one from Auto Zone to fit. Made sure it was tight this time. Also, just got my California plate and registration. Plate is now mounted. Working on building turn signals, brake light, head light, and horn assembly to mount on the bike. During my ride I was able to get out where there were some longer stretches of road and was able to get the bike up to 40mph, lots of fun but feels a little fast for a bicycle.

    Finally was able to get headlight, brake light, turn signals, and horn set up on the bike. Used one of those cheap China bicycle light kits and chopped it up so I could hook it into something that worked a little better but still keep the LEDs for longer battery life. Have everything wired to a motorcycle style control that can be operated by my thumb and put the rear components into a vintage bicycle turn signal case. Will see if it holds up, so far so good. Also added a cargo case, I love the look without it but need to have somewhere to carry things.
