    Do you recall what the weight of this motor was? I am thinking about a Sporty project now that my 86 883 is heading to my son's house

    Looks like I can get this one (allmost) in center if I use counter sunk bolts on the sprocket,
    a sprocket I learned has the same bolt circle as the Sportster one but unfourtunately uses a larger center hole...
    ...and my lathe can not take such big diameter, so PBI to the rescue, 51 teeth sprocket ordered.

    So, here's the final design with an added length for the reaction stay to mount.
    Now I have two options for making it:
    #1 Get a friend to cut it from my file or...
    #2 Print it out and use as a template on that piece of titanium I have in my drawer.
    I know which would be the easiest but damn if Ti is not sweet...

    Finaly decided the caliper bracket layout.
    I will go with it mounted at a 3 o'clock position' rather then the 6 o'clock I planed at first, that was to exposed a position.
    Got my drawings converted to DXF now so propably going to cost me a bottle of my machinists favorite poison...

    Love the look, but how is it going to work with the right side shock? Or, have you done away with that?
