I didnt shim out the sprocket as the chain ran clear. I did have to cut the rear fender where the chain would have rubbed but it looks like it was made that way.

The tank was a different bird all together as I want straps going around the frame. So I put some washers on the tank mount studs and put the nuts on to keep the washers on. The with a piece of cork gasket material I set the tank on the frame and straightened the washers and welded them to the frame. That way I could get the tank off should I need to. Worked pretty slick!! The muffler set up was my sons idea and I have a thread about that, I'll post it after supper!
