Well it’s been 2 weeks since I finished my bike, and I have also noticed that the bike seems to emit a somebody’s else’s problem field, does any body else experience this phenomenon? When people do notice the bike their reaction is positive. It is the most fun I have ever had going to work everyday! It’s simply an amazing way to commute.

In one instance I pulled up to a guy driving a nice new Porsche, at a stop. he had the top down at first he did not notice me but then he must have seen me out of the corner of his eye and did a double take and then gave me a thumbs up!

On Friday I drove by on local municipal security guy and two cops and nothing, but I did kill the engine as I saw them so that probably helped


I was wondering if it is broken in now I have driven approx 90 miles Not including test runs so it could be over 100 miles and I have Burt over gallon and half of gas, but during the first week I had a gas leak I have noticed that the mileage has improved and the engine seems to the higher end more now when I dare to go over half throttle, and it is smoothing out. It has also been very cool around 50 or so, most days I have to wear gloves I thing that could be a good thing for the break in.


I have attacked two photos of my bike does anyone had any name ideas?

Sounds to me like you are about where you are going to stay. I love the attention my bike gets. I am always amazed how little it cost and how much people love the bike.

One of my few good investments. I like your bike, very interesting and well done.

Welcome to the forum. And that is a really nice bike you built there. I love the attention my bike gets riding it around. Everyone wants to know where I bought it. If they only knew................................

Welcome!

You bicycle motor is not broken in yet....around 3-4 tanks full of fuel will get you near there.

Don't baby it too much, vary throttle amount and engine rpm and ride that sukka!

I Purchased The bike came with the bag and rack at Walmart they made a pricing error to the whole thing for 119,97, I went on a night when the Canadians were playing a playoff game against the Bruins so there were no managers in the store.
