    Another approach is to turn up sleeves to go inside the existing bearings to adapt them to your axle size.

    Yes, you cannot move the pulley over on the transmission because there is an inner primary and primary drive in the way. So you move the transmission over, and offset the inner primary at the motor...

    The swingarm pivot bolt, bearings, and distances are the same, so the round swingarm will install on the frame, no problem.

    It is common for those rims to have broken spokes. I think you will have to disassemble the wheel to replace the spokes, but if you could sneak two new ones in, it would save A LOT of labor. Spoking...

    The FXE frames had that mount removed at the factory from about '78 on until the end of production (I think).The FXS, FXWG, and of course the FL frames retained the mount.

    Best way, if you don't have a designated puller for that bearing, is to cut the cage off with dikes and heat the inner race with a torch. Flip tree over and the race will fall off.
