Hey café-ers. I'm in British Columbia, Canada eh.
I spent last winter tearing down and building this free bike and spent THIS winter tearing down and fine-tuning. She's a lot of fun for all the backroads around here but a little weak for the highways.
I will be happy to offer any knowledge and pick all your brains too. Cheers

Front forks are too short.
... and the rear sprocket is too big

You brought it back from the dead and that's a good thing. Don't ya get road snot spitting all over yer battery and pods and back with no rear fender? What about your brake/shifter location given your bar and seat choice? I'd be hunched up like a dog humping a football. My fenders are full length and I'm thinking about adding an extension to keep shit off the bike. Does your front fender do anything? I'm a chain lubeaholic and without a guard it would be everywhere. Do you notice that happening? I didn't know you could run a bike in Canada with the plate on it like that. I thought they were pretty picky. Great roads out that way. I enjoyed riding them last summer. Beautiful scenery. Ride safe.
If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.
At least it has blinkers and mirrors, more than I can say for some bikes that people have passed through here
