It is on the road again!

Took a little over 6 weeks, but we finally have it back together. It still has the seat we made (1st time for that too!), but will have another one on there as soon as I can find one.

'00 Night Train with 300 Series Avon.

Still going to raise the front back up as soon as I find stock dampers.

Take care

Thank you!

They are Hell Bents by JJ. Bought them used, so got a good deal on them.

Take care,
Baldman

What about some more pics? Is that 300 centered? How did you do it?

There are more pics in my gallery.

We kicked the primary about 1 3/4". Stock belt and stock brake caliper.

The kit is made by Zodiac (swingarm & everything needed for the offset.

I can feel the extra weight hanging off of the left side with the primary out, but it isn't too bad. Have some things we might try to help this, but thought we would also talk to people to see what they might have done, if anything, to help.

Thanks everyone.

Take care,
Baldman

tekman it is strutless by Milwaukee Iron. I have a lowering kit on my stock shocks (longer studs) and I can make the fender ride where I want by raising and lowering the bike.

I hope it is centered. There isn't too much room either side for it to be too far out...haha!

Take care,
Baldman

Maybe 300 miles or so. Mostly in town riding to get the handle of it, but have ridden it to work last couple of days to see what she does on the highway.

Take care

Years after the original post but looks like the kit had transmission and starter parts so no offset required here. Can you confirm they are in original position.
I have a 240 with open belt drive but transmission has been offset 1" so rear tyre offset about 1/2" to left and it still pulls slightly to left. I was looking at Zodiac parts to move transmission back so wanted to know how big a job.
