    Here is 1 more pic of my rat rod
    I would like to hit 45~50 on her
    As it is I hit 39 mph with a 39t r & 10 f sprocket
    I put a cns v3 carb on it as well
    That helped but ...
    Are there any heads or even jugs I can put on to help go faster ?

    Nice Ride! There is a forum on this site that discusses performance upgrades. You may want to check that out as I am sure you will find lots of great info there. I just putt around at 25mph....so I wouldn't be much help in that regard.lol

    Welcome to the forum, Logan. You have a lot of company from IL.
    Check out the 'High Performance' and 'Racing' sections for help with gaining HP and speed. 45-50 is a lofty goal. Good luck but keep in mind it is a bicycle, not a motorcycle. Concentrate on good brakes and bearings, strong wheels, spokes and tires.
    Have fun, ride safe.

    39 is actually pretty good. You could try using a 36 tooth rear and lose some of the weight on the bike i.e. fenders, rear bags etc.. remember though safety first, make sure you have on a helmet and some protective gear at those speeds.

    Thank you all for your input .
    I know that 39 is great for this ride & I do keep in mind that it's only a bike .
    If I take off my bags it will not be the rat look I like so much.
    Okay 45~50 maybe out on this one .
    Safety is always first for me , I ride it on the back roads w/lil or on traffic (wide roads) & have a cellphone on me at all times.
    Off to look in the forums to see how to update my other bike then :)

    And remember....if you buzz by folks too fast, then they don't have time to admire the coolness of your nice looking ride there as you slowly glide on by with the music of the muffler projecting smooth notes of putt putt putt.
