Could be worse Steve. I did a '63 Tandem with 5" drums I had to get a sprocket around:



But yea, like fatdaddy said, just take a round file to the holes till you can clear the hub if that's all that's keeping you. It's the sprocket-to-hub fit that's important.

I've been telling everyone how important mantenence on yer bike is, but for a while now, I've been neglecting my bikes. So today I got out there and greased my bucking bar and clutch arm. Then greased up the clutch gear and crank gear and dropped a little oil on the small clutch bearings. Then I jumped on the tadpole and got it all lubed and fixed the headlight. Tightened up some loose bolts, wiped off the dust and test drove it. It's been sitting while I built my Huffy cruiser so it really needed some attention. I think it needs a new plug. I'll get on that tomorrow.

My engine revs to 7800 RPMs and the vibration broke the front motor mount, so I fabricated and installed a heavier mount. After I finished the new motor mount I tried tuning the Mikuni carburetor, but I couldn't get it just right. I have an older engine and I'm thinking it doesn't like gasahol much. I'm hoping to get it right for the 4th of July parade.

I did nothing to it yesterday, but demo it for my grandparents.
And that demo got the cops called on me.

My neighbor (which I have some colorful names for him) called the cops on me because, "As an (former, liar) EMT, I was concerned because he was traveling at a high rate of speed without wearing a helmet, and it seemed NOISY" Yup, that's right, he didn't give two donkey craps about my safety, he was trying to give me grief over the NOISE. Granted, I usually run an open exhaust, but when the officer showed up and wanted to see the bike, before I pulled it out of storage, I put the exhaust cap back on.

Besides that, the officer almost bought my bike from me. He was very interested.
