    Fun times, but I would STRONGLY recommend a front brake on that - don't rely solely on that coaster. Chain brake or jump and you'll be turnin heads for all the wrong reasons.

    She's a beauty! Nice job....




    Gobi is right about that. And even if you never lose braking because of some kind of chain failure, the fact is that that coaster brake could use a bit of help.

    Also, have you reinforced the fender mounts? If the front fender, in particular, should break off and get caught in the tire/wheel at speed, you can do a face plant before you know it. Literally.

    This might well be the biggest danger facing the newbie who doesn't know any better.
