My antiques will do 140 in high gear.............if dropped from a plane.
Seriously they are happiest :biggrin: at about 45-55 mph for the pre-50s ones. The post 50s can do highway speeds if I wanted them to with no problem. The problem is not if, but when they blow up :fie:it is expensive and a pain to locate parts.
Hey, I got mine up to about 70 or 80 and realized that 1. My face couldn't handle the wind abuse without a helmet, 2. I probably shouldn't be riding that fast without a helmet (My T for Triumph scar on my forehead attests to that), and 3. I am nowhere near experienced enough to see if that 140 on the speedometer is for real. So I'm sure not gonna make fun of those sweet ol' cruisers.
