Was out on the Solo powered Bayside, 29.9 MPH, the roller was slipping a little in wet spots , but not bad. It will cruise leisurely at about 20MPH. I did notice if you run it hard it will drink the fuel down, the plastic tank looks like it only holds a 1/5 gallon or so. On a warmer dry day, this set-up may have 35 MPH in it ( I wont use it for that), but it shows the power these FD's cab create.

I had a mid frame. It's a lot of fun, but a lot of money and work. Wanted something easy to maintain, but honestly not interested in most FD kits. I got a Sears bike bug new in box and fell in love, stylish and very reliable. But hard to find parts for.

So I made my own, liked it so much i decided too go to the public with it.
More pictures and what notes soon, video will have to wait until the snow melts.. March? Lol sorry my man.

Thanks for all the kind words and comments. This forum IS the best.

How large is the fuel tank? Thats a downside to running a trimmer tank not a lot of range. Went on a 10mi roundabout
the other day and used 2/3 of a tank. Hence the on board fuel bottle.

This is what comes on my kit right now.
Should be easy to measure mounting holes on the other side of YOUR kit, opposite of engine. I use 6mm t nuts to secure the nut end of the bolt. Let me know if you have questions.

1.5 liters!
