That is more of a wish list Jeff. Lol. I will fit the motor before I do anything. I know builds like this change and constantly evolve.

Is the headset 1 1/4"? I got 1.25 on my calipers. Will a 1 1/8" steerer tube work? Will I need a reducer?

My Dyno's head tubes measure 1-1/16". They are not a standard 1-1/8" that's for sure.

Well.....this build and my motor biking are being put on hold. I was recently diagnosed with Stage IIIA colon cancer at the ripe old age of 37. I need to focus on my health and beating this thing. I will fight to bike another day!

Don't worry...I will still be lurking in the shadows...LOL!

So your next build is going to be a soft tail then? I kid, but seriously, I wish you the best in your fight. You've got a long trek up hill, stay strong and get well!

Surgery went well but treatment is kicking my butt. What sucks most is I'm away from home and my daughter. Hope to be back home by the 20th. I'm feeling positive though...

I used a 1-1/8" headset and turned down the cups as much as possible without making them too thin. Then I reamed out the head tube on both ends as much as possible and then pressed the cups in.

It took quite a bit of turning and reaming to get the headset to finally fit. There are easier ways I'm sure.....just ask Jeff Wolf

Truly sorry to hear about the cancer, it's sounds like you're doing well and you are still young which is a plus. Hang in there bro, If I made it to 57, I'm hopeful you will as well. Both sides of my grandparents had deaths from this and similar cancers so I must be doomed

My skin cancer surgery went well for nine hours cutting and biopsy's 7 times. It's been 5 weeks and it looks like nothing ever happened.



A speedy, thorough recovery to you Mike.....you've got many miles ahead of you!
