Here's a few quick pics of a customers Switchblade that I'm currently building...

I figured the easiest way to build it & keep the fat 3" rear tire, was to offset the engine & sprocket 1/2 inch, like we do on Harleys. (I still have to fab a offset front engine mount.)

I have a lot of respect for all the work Hellbilly put into his Switchblades... But I really wanted to keep this simple!

YES... there are still two mounting studs in the engine!! The right side stud is hidden!

Here's some pics of the front mount... I made it from 1/4" steel.
The bike runs good, & the engine mounting is very solid!
(I'm kinda proud of myself with this bike...)
I really hate the way the paint turned brown on this engine. (It's the customers engine... not one of mine!)
