    I've just started my spoiler project and 1st thing I changed the seat!, Then I took the original tire off and put on a 130/80x16 rear. It just fits .I want to install a Honda GXH50 chain drive, but there's no room for the drive chain? On the right side I have my pedal chain and on the left I have my disc brakes.If I took my disc off, there's no chain clearance! So I thought about another friction drive but the normal roller drive housing is 3.5'' inside width & I need 6'' to make It work. Any suggestions??(c)

    Heres a spoiler setup for ya. Double belt gear deduction. The thing with the spoiler is you have all kinds of room, the frame is set up wide open, you have no brake problems (front and rear disk) and the frame is heavy and solid as a rock. I have a nylon sheave bolted to the rim (no broken spokes that way). if you use a sprocket you need to set it up so the sprocket is also your brake rotor or you will have no back brake. If you can go without friction drive it would be way better.

    Here is an early pic of the drive (stage 1) and a few recent pics done

    Hey, hows it goin! Here's what me and a couple of friends came up with for my rear fat boy tire & chain clearance problem for my Spoiler.rotfl It came out pretty good but the bike is heavy and I'm getting around 30 + mph. My friction drive KK Slick Daddy w/the same engine is 45 to 50 mph!:ride
