With all due respect, I would not attempt, or advise others to make this with the wheel you are using,

Bicycle wheels are NOT engineered to rotate at highway speeds!

Same goes for the tires/tyres.

Bicycle wheels are notoriously neglected, and are frequently found to have little to no grease in the bearings.

What size universal (socket) joint? Avoid cheap Chinese u-joints. Use Snap-on, Craftsman, etc.

Again, bicycle parts are NOT meant for sustained high speed use!

I appreciate your concerns ,
Your are correct ,
this was not my first choice , this is why I made the wheel fork holder separate than the rest of the frame in order to replace the whole Fork/ Wheel assembly when a better/bigger wheel available ,I actually rushed completing the project just for the sake of seeing it in action ,I admit that more adjustments are required..

Thanks again
