Looks like a great little beast of a ride! Hows the shake down run? That first run is always the greatest fun thrill ever!

so far so good, clutch works as it should and jackshaft bracket is secured in place.

just need to get a new cutting disc for the angle grinder so i can cut the shaft to size.

i didn't know how long i needed of one so i ordered an 18" long shaft, once i cut it down i'm going to measure it again to find out the final size it needs to be.

LOL

GREAT!
I'm watchin' all u hotrod guys!!!
HP and reliability... sounds good to me! lol

Do you have the sliding axle adjustment on your frame? or dropouts?
Maybe u could get those eye-bolt kinda washers that go back to a piece at the end of the axle slide-in thingy, with a nut on the end of it???
Gosh was THAT a horrid job of 'splaining!!! lol

Good luck!

sadly it just has vertical dropouts. :< so no way to adjust it there. right now i'm using the derailer to act as a chain tensioner, it works for the most part. only problem is the only freewheel in the system is on the crank so i have to run the chain super tight and even then it still tries to jump off.

it's one of those things where if my rear gear was a tooth bigger or smaller, it would be perfect.

I also need to see about getting a smaller belt as the current one has a little too much slack in it.

Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I got a little done on the Schwinn Southport today.
Not much, but I'm whooped. lol

Took the rag joint apart to replace the broken spoke, so I could true the bent wheel the bike came with... Pulled a spoke out of a spare-parts wheel... too long!
Anybody know what die to use to re-thread a 14g spoke??? lol
So I had to pull a spoke from another wheel that was actually a good one. Oh well.
I REALLY don't like rag joints! They are more difficult to take apart than to assemble in the first place!
Used the crazy mixed up bolts it came with to re-assemble it.
China bolts that are too soft and the nuts get rounded off using a china wrench on 'em.
Gosh! I'll replace 'em all after the chain stretches and the rag settles down into whatever position it likes to be in...
Change. Something you can be assured of.
At least when dealing with a rag joint!

I got the rag joint set up to within .030 on both concentric and lateral runout. That's good!!!
It's just NOT gonna stay that way, though...

I really must try to get a hub that can run an adapter one of our vendors offer.

Took a file to the sprocket teeth a bit... There are scars on it from where it threw a chain for the last builder. I hope to avoid that! lol

Got set up to weld the new front motor mount... I'll do that manana. God willing and the crick don't rise!

Spent some time considering the odd style of center-pull brake taken off one of the 'English bikes'. It's kinda neato...
It's got arms that cross, differently than most caliper brakes!
...I'll post my delerious blathering regarding it over in my brake thread...

Awful nice day here in Kalifornia... I should be out having fun riding! At 1800 it's 70%, sunny w/a few high cirrhus clouds, and 0 wind... and this build is for #2... won't be able to build one for myself until his is running well... Oh well.

Best
