    killer thread, loving how you're documenting everything man. I'm new to this whole thing - did you change the rake on your frame at all? or did you just extend the fork by 6"? thanks, hopefully i don't sound totally clueless haha. bike looking great though.

    So I decided I don't like how the stock cam cover hides the oil lines and I decided to trim it down.

    So I ghetto rigged the motor to lay on its side, I thought it would be easier to pull it off like this.

    Hopefully I can trim the Cam cover today, I can only go into my dads shop and work when all the mechanics leave at around 5:00. So until then.



    And here is the rear chain cog with some hardware that I threw together.

    For what it's worth, I have tried this technique with a fender similar to your and it didn't work so well for me. I ended up doing it the old school way with a metal hammer and shrinking the radius that way, pretty time consuming but it worked. Hopefully that way works for you! Build looks like its coming along nicely too

    Thanks Benny, I'm pretty anal about wheel fitment so I think I'm going to ask one of my friends to help me with it.

    So I'm about to finish up my last semester before the summer, so now I can start getting down to business.

    I'm having a slight bit of trouble spacing my rear wheel, I set up the spacers exactly how they were on my swingarm frame, the problem is that since the swingarm is thicker it pretty much acted as a spacer, and now I have a bunch of extra axle sticking out. Is best way to remedy this to put more spacers on the axle outside of the frame? Or should I get a new axle? Also I think the rear end on this hardtail might be slightly wider than the swingarm. Here are some pictures:

    On the axle spacing deal....you don't have your axle adjusters installed in the pic....that should scoop up a bunch of axle meat.

    Good catch foodog. He's right and your axle is probably the correct length as is, just need the tensioners installed n fabbed. Good looking build so far man.

    While I'm waiting on some spacers to be machined, I welded up my top motor mount.

    Also recently I figured out that the guy that sold me the 33.4mm front end sold me it with 35mm trees, I have some spacers that make the front end work but now the top caps poke and I don't like how it looks. Let me know if any of you guys have 33.4mm trees that will work with a 1in stem!

    Man your fender and seat are looking extremely well fitted. As I'm sure you've already figured out that takes a great deal of time and attention to detail to pull off and you nailed it. I must have fumbled with that process for weeks on my first build and still didn't get that clean of a look, nice work. My only word of caution is make sure you have a fair bit of gap between that tire and fender. From the picture it looks like you're good to go but it's worth an extra glance. Our tires do get taller once they are spinning at highway speeds. I think the rule of thumb is 1" someone may have better advice on the exact number. Even still more is better. You may choose a different tire down the road that despite being the same sticker size actually measures taller. If you're going to tuck you're tail light wiring under the fender more gap is your friend. You could go an extra step further and tak a nice small little piece of pipe on the under side of the fender to pass the wires inside of in liue of janky tape or adele clamps. Just food for thought man, these are all things I learned the hard way after paint which caused tons of frustration.

    Oh also it's obvious you're good at using an angel grinder so instead of waiting on a lathe to get axle spacers cut most of us just keep a small amount of axle spacer stock on hand and just cut and finish to size with our grinders at home as needed. Makes things quicker for next time.

    Killer stuff though, thanks for keeping the thread alive because this thing is starting to look like a rad bike.
