Hopefully this shot shows the side idler plate I had originaly cobbled up to allow the chain to reach the front chain ring. It worked with the original 6speed and derailer, but does not work for some strange reason with a 3 speed rear hub an 4 inch wide tire/rim. I have tried to "reconfigure" my original set up and am becoming frustrated from re-egineering.
Would it be possible to make availiable some new plates to drop the jackshaft r/s drive gear down far enough to clear the bottom of the clutch housing for a direct shot to the chainring?
I am talking about an inch to inch and a half.
Might be an option for others in a simular predicament. "Jackshaft kit for extended frames or choppers with chain ring forward".
Thanks for your input.
