I don't care for that super- wide tire craze...but the chain and jackshaft is interesting.

That is a nice looking Valk. I agree about the fat tires. I was riding behind a extended fork chopper. It has a 300 wide tire. When it cornered, it looked like the bike raised up when it cornered and the tire ran up on the sidewall.

Depend's on the chain they are using. I put 200HP through a chain on the one drag bike. A Pro Stock bike makes 400HP (or more depending on who you talk to) using a chain. There are other much more powerful bikes using chain drive. These are all at the track where traction is VERY GOOD. On the street the tire will slip before I would worry about the chain. ;)
