    Welcome to GH. I did some work on one up here at 4100' above sea level.It ran 48mph with a few mods.I would guess the sea level speeds to be around 48+mph in that range.Someone should chime in.

    I just wanted to know so that I could evaluate that everything was more or less working correctly (driveline, motor, etc.)

    no, it was not on gps unfortunately. It was glass early in the morning on the ocean. So i would say a safe guess for top speed would be 52mph +/- 2mph
