I didn't read every post but for your belt dragging issue, a guide or guard fairly close around the engine pulley may help to stop it. Sometimes they pull themselves tight if they don't have a guard around them, which keeps it dragging. Looks cool though. Nifty exhaust.

The belt was just to short I needed a 65.5 inch but all there was were 46 and 47, so I tried 46 and now it's a 47 and needs a new clutch. Took it on a 5th gear run today, did ok but I don't think it hit above 55 ish. I need to get the clutch redesigned again to take out the belt slippage. But other wise it handles well. Wasn't as freaky as I imagined it being at that speed. Doesn't want to shiftninto 5th while moving so I just started in 5th and clutched it slowly until I got going. Need to figure that one out I guess.

Dude awesome first test drive!!!    

I could tell by the audio in the clip that you were really enjoying it.  I wonder why it wouldn't shift into 5th on the go?  I hope you can get your hands on a GPS soon and measure the top speed.  I'm excited to know what it is.

I'd like to see another video of it or some more pictures of what you've been doing to it.

Not too much new to it, just a throttle lever and new clutch. It needs to be switched to direct steering as the minimal play is magnified at 50 ish mph on dirt roads. Should get a tip speed run tomorrow. Needs belt keepers and something to help the oil mess.

Well I've been going through some video and can't find the good footage. So I will get more tomorrow after I do siempre work and get a tip speed run hopefully.

Well it needs a new belt, apparently it fell off and got caught on something and rubbed mostly through in a spot, but otherwise it ran pretty good. No top speed test yet sadly.

I recall a post where you were talking about installing belt keepers.

How hard do you think it would be to convert it to direct starin? Come to think of it my dad’s craftsman RER has direct steering.

So , a thing has happened that involves this machine. I got a 99cc 5 speed Honda motorcycle engine from a freind to put on it and take off the mower tranny and mower engine. This will probably disqualify it but for higher speeds the 700 will not last long and I am going for durability and a fun machine to play around on. Not set in stone but very likely to happen as I have the engine in my garage now.

Sounds like a good plan to me!!!  For long lasting high speeds I think a motorcycle drivetrain is the way to go.  Taking it out of the build off isn't the end of the world man.  Build it the way you want to build it.

I can confirm the motorcycle engine would DQ the build. Still sounds like a super fun build.
