Sorry to hear it Savage. The very first thing I do on a build is the H.D. rear wheel thing. You can even run a cheapo chain if you make sure it's alighned and lubed,(a good chain is better,) but a lightweight wheel will get you every time.
The next thing to do, if you haven't already, is to get a sprocket hub adapter. Driving the wheel from the spokes it just NOT a good idea, Even with a H.D. wheel. A rag joint may last a while, but you WILL be replacing spokes down the road.
