Oh yeah! It’s got a nice lower gear and it’s balanced so you can pop them all the time...it’s a blast and I end each ride with a wheelie to a halt.

really nice bike! looks like it had some 26" front forks on when it was a duckling
Thanks! It had half a springer at first and I’d seen how the 26” looked on @locojoe ‘s bronco bike. That’s what inspired the wheelie direction. With the 26“ and Fastback wheel it was always lifting up so I went with it. I need to adapt the design like a taller center wheel so I can steer the wheelie.
