Flashing speed zone sign and vehicle in pursuit confirmed gps reading, the 67 I will add was down hill, 61 was flats top speed, well as flat as I can get for the longest stretch.

You said you did this speed on a stock cylinder. Was it a 125 or 150? Because there is no way it was on a 50...... Please do not troll on this forum sir.

It was indeed a stock bore in a 50, donÔÇÖt believe me thatÔÇÖs fine, IÔÇÖm not trolling anything. Just sharing my numbers, theyÔÇÖre legit. Af16 on a spree with mild trans work. None of these numbers were easily obtainable but did happen. DidnÔÇÖt happen for long however IÔÇÖll give you that, crank ended up needing a little attention. Just got done with a full rebuild. I donÔÇÖt appreciate being called a troll so feel free to ask what other mods may or may not have been done if you havenÔÇÖt already sealed your hastily decided opinion. Though this is just the internet so if you donÔÇÖt believe it, thatÔÇÖs fine.

On a spree, with a af16 w gears and CVT work? How much you weigh? This is right on the verge of believable to me haha. But, sadly, no video no speed. Please don't be too insulted by this; I'm sure you can imagine how many guys have come on to forums claiming a speed just to cause a ruckus. But, honestly, a spree is light and with tall gears I've seen other bikes get there before ( derbi gp-1, some piaggios) on a stock 49cc bore.

If you did hit 67 on a spree, you got nuts. My spree feels sketchy at 30, and a panic stop the other day proved how sketchy it was haha. Took like a hundred feet to stop haha.

IÔÇÖd be interested to know what kind of work was done, particularly the crank. In my experience, 60mph+ on a stock AF16 other than trans would be a first. Downhill, sure, but honest flats would be quite a feat if true.

Yea, I had a kitted AF16 Spree yearÔÇÖs ago and even 50mph+ combined with soft brakes was too sketch for me. The first unplanned brake test was... eye opening.

Greetings:

We're all agreed that going fast isn't the problem. Stopping before you become a Prius hood ornament is the problem. Even with the mighty 95mm drums on Flash9, I am very careful not to go too fast unless the scenery is wide-open. Driveways and cross-streets are a real danger.

That's one of the reasons I sold the spree-a-relli. It hit 50-something about twice as fast as it slowed down from that speed, even with the "big" 110mm rear minarelli brake.
