After my first couple builds it looks to me like one of the most important steps is truing up the drive sprocket. I used a magnetic base and dial indicator on the bike frame on the first two, and it was kind of a hassel. So I decided to build a simple and cheap truing stand. I took an old bike frame, I picked up free, cut the back half off, made a little bracket for my dial indicator and bolted it to a short 2x10. Basically nothing invested but a little time in the shop. I have to get creative in this economy now that I am retired. I will attach a picture.
