I don't see why not! At your speed, you should have plenty of time to work any major kinks out before 4th of July. Go for it!
BTW, I stand corrected. Glen is right that a serial number of 205000 would be a 1958. If you can really want to know the year of your Cub, take several casting dates and see what most of them are, including the serial number on your engine (should be a flat, milled spot behind the manifold/carb area). That should get you closer to the date of your Cub.
Keep us posted on your progress.
