Interesting mod, I hope it works out. Have you considered breaking and shortening the pedal chain instead?

Completed a 48 mile run to valley forge national park. The bikes look sweet in a bigass arch at sunrise.

We left at 1120 last nite, got back about 1015 this morning hahaha. So many deviations and slight mechanical issues.

My bike has a brand new (well with 48 miles) fred motor on it and for some reason the clutch is giving me trouble. It doesnt want to adjust and hold adjustment. Or grab at all sometimes. Ive yet to do any more than adjust the cable stop on the clutch arm and fiddle with the fine adjust in the clutch compartment. Anyways fiddling will be done tomorrow as im beat as anything from our errr expedition.

took the dead coaster wheel off the cruiser I bought last year - ground teeth real thin on crank sprocket - put a 5speed wheel on & derailer - pinch-nut on freewheel side held tire about 1/4 inch off to the left of center, so cut 1/4 inch off the standoff of the pinch-nut - freewheel just barely rubbed on frame, so put back one thin washer

works just fine

Yay, my care package arrived today as well, Thanks Neil!

Bottom end looks great and I know its the luck of the draw but it looks better than my other one. Neil also sent me a 36T sprocket a few shirts and some gaskets-WooHoo I love package day!



Maniac, I will be watching your build VERY closely!

Dan.

Dang-it Paul.... wish I could be cleaning my bikes up today, I guess I could pull them out of the shop and let the freezing rain and ice scrub them down.......!

Oh what I would give for some warm dry weather right now....!

Happy safe ridding wishes to all who can.
