    Everyone has their vision of perfect bikes...yours is it me.

    Something I used to do back in the day using cheapo headsets is running loose balls from 3 or 4 retainers. It distributes the pressure more evenly. kept my cups alive longer after days of ramps.

    You'll never be forgiven if you close those bars up!:p

    First to finish! 1HP your builds are always fascinating, and never the same style. This looks like a fun bike! I guess all bets are off, right @GuitarlCarl ? :wink1: (predicted an OddJob first to finish)

    Some real outside the box solutions here. I love the simplicity of the tensioner and reversing the hub like that is pretty ingenious too. re the 2 speeds, did you rebuild the hub after welding to it? It's possible that you have gummed up oil from the heat jamming the pawls.
