Very cool, what sort of gearing do you have on it? Also what estimated top speed is it reaching currently?

well to answer everyone it has 10 tooth 60 tooth rear sprocket top speed at the moment is right around 40 mph when i built the bike i really wanted lower gearing to crawl over hills but i was told with the horse power at hand there would be no prob of climbing and i weigh 380lbs to give and idea of torque when i was putting at 10mph i could nail the throttle and the front tire would come up 6" easily and yes i have bunches of pics but there is some things were trial and error that i did'nt get so the bike really needs a top engine brace due to when it idles for smoother take off, the fenders are sheet metal not sure of thickness go to youtube type in travelinjavelin and you can see this i have issues on rear axle too but has new bearings in it now and just needs the drive chain back on
