Gotta Bunch'a Parts
Alright, so this week I received a bunch of parts and here they are.
Got in my rear Harley Davidson disc to go with my HD wheel that should be here later this next week. I ordered this rotor along with my rear tire and wheel on eBay from American Classic Motors. That have some of the best prices online!!!
I had to order a custom rear sprocket that would have the low number of teeth for the gearing on the Japanese bike but bolt pattern and 2" spacer for the Harley Davidson wheel. Rebel Gears is great, they got me a custom 33 teeth sprocket instead of 34T that comes stock. They can make any custom sprocket and were very fast.
Typically when you convert a soft tail bike to a hard tail there is issues with the chain slack. After the chain stretches it can slap the bottom rail or your tire. To remedy this guys have been installing chain tensioners that can be spring loaded to comepnsate over time for the chain stretch. How cool was it to go old school to my younger years and roll with a Powell Peralta skateboard wheel as a tensioner! I picked this up at Lowbrow Customs, check 'em out. Good guys and good gear!
I also got in my tractor leaf spring that will be converted to a seat spring to make the seat float in the air, fingers crossed. This particular spring is a 1000lb. spring so I should be fine. Actually I will remove the smaller third leaf which will accomodate anyone from 100lb to about 300lb. The lower picture shows the eyes cut off. I am hoping I can halve the spring and sale the second as a full leaf spring kit. I may have to cut past the half way mark making the leftover useless.
Also I received one of the best looking parts on this bike, the sexy Single Cap Alien Gas Tank arrived from Cycle X. I got a sweet deal on it and it looks perfect on my scoot. Need to figure out the valve and petcock if any fab'ing is in order. Hopefully it will all work. Also thinking about an external gas gauge...
I will also be picking up a brass cap for it as well.
