The kit will include a new engine sprocket that has been machined with the correct tooth form.

The CAD graphic at the bottom of post #13 in this thread shows the total thickness of the cluster.

The cluster mounts directly to one of my sprocket adapters. The cluster will be positioned, (on the hub), so that the center sprocket is in-line with the engine.

I just need to make a deraileur and it will be ready to test.

Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
