Welcome to the Finish-ed line! Nice shot with the tank. Fifteen miles must mean you got the motor running....! How'd she handle?

He was low and fast, i had to stop a few times to clean a bug or two from my safety glasses... Possibly ate one too.
The jackshaft system was shaky to start in the first mile but seemed to run itself right, at that point i preformed a safety check and tightened a few bolts. The next fourteen were on a paved bike trail into a semi mountain/hilled area where i tested the geared torque ratios.... Which really made the climb suitable. All in all this horse is built for a jockey around 5'6"-5'10" not my six fooot three build.

Here are my before and during shots


A general mockup of what was expected....

Here is one after the rear was rebent to accept the cassette of the geared rear wheel.

Shaping the "engine hood" fabricated from the front mud guard.

Padding the left grip for an easier ride with a used grip and spare cork wrap.
