    Should have known better than to try and sneak that one by, got a friend to paint it and we decided it needed one.

    Le moto est le dangle from le sky hooks....
    Two instant problems, chain alignment for fat wheel, may have to move the engine over which will be a pain. The front sprocket is on a taper and the kit actually includes a puller for it! Not an easy job to space the sprocket out.
    Exhaust clashes due to forward position of crank. I feel a crude expansion pipe coming on...

    Can you just weld a pushie sprocket to that one (with a boss if necessary) to obtain the offset?

    Got to be better than moving the engine over.

    Cheers

    Have you investigated to see if anyone makes an offset sprocket? Maybe you machine the sprocket down and fabricate an offset sprocket to weld on?

    I went through the same problem with my H1b project

    I've been a measuring today. Motor side needs a chain line 55mm from C/L to clear tyre, that means 17mm on the front sprocket and about the same rear.
    I've just bought a new front sprocket at £3.99 so can make the longer one up with the two and some welding. The clutch will need an extension rod turned up and the casing spaced off but all doable. Also bought a new 130 link 415 chain for next to nothing.
    The rear can be spaced out with an ally ring dimensions of which will have to wait until the wheel is built.
    Pedal side needs a 53mm chain line which means 11mm on the front sprocket, easy spacer, but the 8mm on the rear is going to be a little more problematic.

    Bought 4 of these today at a cost double that of chain and sprocket! I've got to get some brake levers next, hopefully for less.
