Good luck with your FD kit. I've always wanted to try a 4 stroke FD system, so simple you will be up and running same day. Good looking bike it's going on. Post some Picts when done.

I been able to run 4 tanks of gas through the engine so far and it is really working out good. I have ran it on some small hills and also on some wet roads. Takes the hills real good and no slip on the drive roller. Well pleased with the engine and 1.125 drive roller. I am running the Electra 26x2.125 Cruiser Retrorunner Stock tires.

I have ran over a gal. of fuel through the engine and it is breaking nice. I have a top speed of 32.63 miles per hour turning 9750 rpms. This is turning to be strong engine.

Floridaboy, Your for sure hooked, like that's a bad thing. Congrats on the first of what will be probably a row of 4 bikes with motors in your garage like me, He he. Not a bad thing. It's a "Big Bang"for ones buck, and a great hobby. At least u can ride all year, we only have what seems like 1 month a year we can ride before snow is flying. Summer is flying by too fast.
