Since the Speed bike is going to be sort of displayed i thougt it would be cool if it would be
in good running order but frankly it has been a bit of a struggle. The new carb came but it's crap, the size of the intake is much smaller than the stock so the engine just gurgle's fuel. The new throttle works great though..
Another problem is the gearing, with the big 28 rear wheel paired to a 36 tooth
rear cog means that it has a great theoretical cruising speed at a airfield or on the saltflats but it's pretty
hard to bump start and get UP to decent speed, it really struggle's and bogs down at lower speed..
But in a weird way i like that, the idea of some thing being built for just one purpose. True speed bikes are seldom cretaures of either comfort or compliance
