    nice job welding the additional frame reinforcements. its going to be a beast. if people ask you why you're building it, tell them just because you can. looking good!

    How's the bike coming?

    Could you post a side shot with both wheels on?

    Drag brake? You mean disc brake? It will bite much harder on the jackshaft than it would on the rear wheel. I briefly considered going that route with my 98cc engine, but instead I'm going to run a bmx brake in the rear. Don't really feel I'll need a disc brake on the jackshaft, since I'm going to be running a motorcycle drum upfront.

    One thing I tell ya is that monster engine is gonna eat that thin 7-speed chain for breakfast.

    been riding it, and it is smooth, and no i mean a drag brake on the jackshaft, A brake which provides retarding force without external control. the chain holds at 30 so i beg to differ. and so be it i will upgrade

    Don't miss a shift and your fine, miss shift coming up to a light with momentum for example and downshifted too low a gear then WOT it and it will take the chain and in one case I saw the derailleur with it.

    That was just ~3.5HP 2-stroke I built, convinced him to swap out the rear gears for internals with a nice 410 HD chain and he still rides it to this day with no issues.

    Even though I'm a helmetless guy, I suggest a full-face helmet.The extra weight, the extra power, and the crazy extra rake on the forks is a good recipe.I've heard many stories about those lowrider forks going "SNAP".
