This bike tops out at between 65 and 70 mph. It cruises comfortably at 50 to 55 mph. I would have to be cutting up to get a speeding ticket with it. But it is possible to get one. LOL

Can't just show all the good. Must show the bad also. Will be building a new set of legs. Welds were not as good as I wanted them to be. Took them to someone I thought would do a good job due to me not having a 220 welder. Hey it happens.
Didn't look right in a couple spots so I went digging to inspect penatration. This is what I found. Thought about grinding and rewelding. But just going to rebuild. A peace at mind thing.

Bottom link made. Now I can work in the table with them. Bottom link will be welded to the bars. Then molded in or trimmed up for a cleaner look.

Going with Alpha Dress Blue Uniform. Spend 8 years in the service. 4 years Blue side (Navy) and 4 years Green side (USMC).
I did all the layout for the lettering (because I was doing the lettering myself). He did the rest. Learned a lot from this. Next time let the Engraver do it all. He he he
Received these pictures from the engraver this weekend. Valve cover's not done yet.
