    I new here from Australia.

    Check out my rusty old 27" 10 speed ( first build )

    I'll paint it one day.

    I'm using a 70cc from Z-Box

    Barley need the tensioner!

    i bet you have an impressive top-speed with that bad-baby, but i'm not so sure i'd want to have to try to stay on top of it. i've wondered about motorizing a 700 wheel...is it squirrely?

    what's this i hear about paint? we don't need no steenkin' paint! well, maybe a coat of clear to protect the patina... ;)

    welcome to MBc :cool:

    I actually like the 1 and a 1/4 inch tires. I run them at 65 psi. They are rated for 85 psi! Makes for very little rolling resistance. But you have to be careful where you steer it.

    But it does 25 mph at half throttle.

    Tracks straight and true like an old Australian made 70's era ten speed should.
