Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Using a brass bushing like I was thinking of and just chucking it up in the lathe and then slicing off the thickness you need for the right spacing wouldn't interfere with bearings getting lube since the OD would likely be roughly the same size as the bearings inner race OD, the spacer would just kinda act like and extension of the bearing inner bearing race that is on the crank shaft.

This was my thinking, instead of making a shim washer, this would be what I would call a spacer on the shaft.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
