It will never see the road cept for 1/4 mile from my house to the shop, and thats under 30 mph.

However, Spas did a leaf spring on her 2nd gen and it handels like a dream, but then again hers was built for on road. Mine was done for strictly trail.

define street worthy... Ive had it to 45 mph and back and the ride really wasnt scary at all. If the driveshafts and tires were balanced and I had all 4 shocks on instead of 2 I think it would be pretty good. But its never getting sway bars or fenders, or anything to make it more "streetable"
