I don't have a problem believing the power wheelies. I had low compression r100 pistons in my bike for a while and could do power wheelies in first gear. Man, they're hard to control! That was with low G/S gearing and the fact that my boxes hang behind my axle with that short monolever swingarm though.

Glad you're on your wheels, SS. Seems like you've got a fine 'build thread' right here to lay out your set-up so the rest of us don't have to spend 30 years figuring out how to do it. I give it 3 weeks before it gets sent to the basement
