    So I am having a real hard time finding a machine shop or machinist that does not want my left arm for payment. I need to have an adapter plate for my disk brake wheel made and I need to have the center hole on my sprocket enlarged If anyone is or knows of a machinist in or near Corvallis Oregon please let me know. I will try to make my own but I have not the tools needed to make it centrifugally balanced or the tool to ream out the sprocket thanks and peace out

    I think that those would work perfectly, this is the wheel I bought I don't know what brand the hub is do you guys think the top hat will fit this hub and the price is way better than I was quoted for two hours shop time but it is still a little steep for my unemployment I am still thinking I might cut one out of 1/8" steel and see how round I can get it with a drill a dremel and some hand tools. If I can come up with enough money I will probably buy the top hat if it will fit my hub, it would be nice to be able to still use a disk brake. Thanks for the fast reply's

    If cash is the problem just get the disc mounted sprocket first and the top hat later, I have a slightly used 39 tooth disc mounted sprocket from andy had it listed in swap section.
    Cheers

    Do you have pics or a link to what you have. How does it do for clearance? I need the sprocket to be close to the spokes or I will Have alignment issues I wish I could just bolt the sprocket right to the hub but that would be to easy thanks

    Those sprockets are made to bolt right to the hub. If you need a little more clearence put a couple washers between the stays and hub. Check out my thread attached to my posts there is a pic of the sprocket on my cruiser.

    Cheers
