road worthy!

Well, Almost roadworthy! I don't have any pictures as yet, but we took monster dog on the first test run today.

The bike is running well,I haven't opened up as yet but the bike seems to be pulling well and acceleration is very crisp.I really couldn't get past second gear (I was doing a slow 80kmh) as traffic around my workshop is quite heavy.


The bike is very stable and the riding position is quite comfortable.The only problem is the rear sets,the mounting clamp tends to flex a bit so I will be redesigning them in the coming week.

I will post some fresh pictures and try to upload a video as well.
