    Your scoot looks great with the swingarm mount rear fender... I can remove the struts and mount a fender to the swingarm later, but got to give them a try first.

    I didn't want the rear fender to be 4 or 5 inches above the tire and since it was going to be a 1 person ride... I cut them off.

    What Speedo are you using? One of the good ideas I found here is using a Bicycle Speedometer, Works like a Champ!

    Making progress, though it's hard to see:





    Starter installed, lathe time required to establish proper clearance on the pinion gear. Sourced heim-joint for shift linkage, used a button head stainless bolt for clearance between shift and front cylinder. Sizing a stainless button head to mount speedo sensor to transmission... all the little things that go into fitting the puzzle together.

    More of the little things:



    Removed OEM chrome oil tank, replaced with Kraft Tech oil tank... soon to be Satin Black. Mounted jiffy-stand and mounted regulator to front of frame.



    Kraft Tech top engine mount. Marine grade tinned wire ordered for wiring harness... will 5 colors be enough?

    Pulling string across backside of sprockets to verify/check alignment:



    Rear wheel centered in frame, Jupiter aligns with Mars, (sprockets aligned) rear brake doesn't drag...

    Almost a roller:



    Final machining of front spacers, axle required a little lathe time. Next, mount rear tire... move project to shop.

    Good looking build. I have built two bikes with Kraft tech frames. No shimming under either engine, couldn't say that about the Paughco frame I had. I consider them the best mass produced frames on the market. That S&S is going to be a thumper. Good choice of drive line components too. Can you share a little more info on adapting those wheels? Sealed bearings? Axle size?

    Using stock 1” sealed bearings in both wheels. Front end is a hybrid, FLH sliders and Softail Heritage trees. Using 1” FLH axle… Softail trees are about 3/8” narrower than FLH, wheel fits with just enough clearance. Front (FLH) axle is basically 3/8” too long, taper was hitting left slider before tightening wheel. Machined taper back 3/8”… axle now sticks out the left slider too far. Made a 3/8” spacer for left side (outside) of left slider… axle now fits (and secures wheel) properly. Start with 0.8” wheel spacers (both sides)… fine tune from there.

    Using standard 3/4” Softail rear axle… used reducers with the 1” sealed bearings. (Will replace with 3/4” sealed bearings when the 1” need replacing.) Using standard alignment frame, no offset, and standard width (OEM) swingarm. Chain drive: PBI Transmission Sprocket 24T 283-24 / PBI Rear Wheel Sprocket 51T 2073SX. Too many variables to suggest a start size for your wheel spacers… I center wheel, align sprockets, then make the rear brake work properly.

    Used FLH sliders so I could run dual Brembo front brakes with 11.8” discs… Conestoga 9-spokes because I like the look. Will need to mill the Brembo caliper mounts to compensate for narrower Softail trees… simple “bolt on” OEM mods.
