    It looks like you've built a functional bike. That's unusual for the cafe crowd. You want to keep an eye on everything for a while to make sure it's sound and safe to see "how it goes".

    You really should get a decent pair of boots to ride. If that pig lands on your leg and drags you across the pavement your ankle will be fucked.

    Ya we all noticed the runners, great for running, useless for riding motorcycles, only flip-flops are worse.

    110 mph is all I have done so far. Put about 400 miles on it this summer and so far nothing seems unsafe and the ride is stable. Did notice the front end was very stiff. Took the springs out and noticed on one of them the bottom washer was tipped up. Not sure how that happened but sure it's mechanic error. Fixed it and it rides much better.

    Northern MN road. well maintained, no curves, no driveways. just got it there and backed it down. got there pretty quickly too. one thing that happened tho is i started having problems shifting and keeping it in mid-range gears. turns out the Gear Stop mechanism and spring had come loose (or, the bolt that hold them in did). i put some blue thread lock on there, for whatever good that may do. any advice on how to prevent that from happening again?

    The blue loctite will do the job, but the bolt and whatever threads it screws into need to be squeaky clean for it to work really well. (Assuming the threads are still ok) It works best if use sometime like acetone... clean it until you can wipe the threads with a white cloth or paper towel until there is no oil residue left which usually takes more than one application of acetone. You could use brake cleaner, but I hate that stuff.... plus if I weld something that has been exposed to brake cleaner,.... the results are not good.. life expectancy wise.

    This was a shaft drive conversion bike yes?
    Does your rear sprocket have a rubber cushion drive?
