Default Re: First build by most not handy guy

KC speaks the truth. The engine may well need to be offset from center to get chain/frame/tire clearance and even then you might need to do some creative engineering. I'm not familiar with this particular bike and rear brake situation but it might be possible to space the rear, driven sprocket outboard but even so, with a fat rear tire and limited space for the sprocket, the engine is most likely going to need to be moved to the left of center. My Nirve Switchblade required 9/16" offset from center to get things to line up which required fabricating new mounts, front and rear.
