    here's my first build.
    what do you guys think?
    i've got about 22 mph in it just after building it. will that go up after break in phase?

    p.s. my valve stem got cut off. it's not flat now though

    Nice build!
    The engine's power and your top speed will increase after the engine has been broken in properly. That will take anywhere from 1 to 2 gallons of fuel while riding it mildly with occasional bursts of mad power full throttle for a short time to help seat the piston rings.

    Congratulations!
    As it breaks in more, I bet you'll get 35 out of it, but don't push it too hard. After all it is an assist engine, not a motorcycle engine. Some pedaling required, and Don't expect to reach warp speed.....ever.

    Enjoy the ride!
