    Looking good. Give us some performance feedback after you get it shook down and feel comfortable running it up to its top speed on level ground with light wind.

    she performs well i couldnt give you a speed but i can tell you that i dont even have to push much on the throttle for this thing to book.

    If you have a modern smartphone go download a cycling app. I'm running BikeBrain on my Iphone6+ and it works quite well. Most of these bikes will do between 25-40 mph. Way faster than most cyclists can maintain for 20 miles.

    Is this friction drive engine a specific Honda product for bicycles? Where did you get it? $$? Thx.

    There are several companies that sell friction drive motor units. They are reasonably easy to install and installed properly they are very reliable and durable. I suggest you research our website here to review the various motorised options to better inform your decision.
