Ahhhh....I hate to burst your bubble bro. But I'm riding a DNA 250 rear setup with the same offset at the gearbox and motor centered. Pulls to the left so bad you'd never ride hands off...........

Wuhoooooooo long train comin

Well I know but 160 mile shakedown trip on a bike that is just getting the locktite to set is a bad idea butt .........Fukit armed with a good tool kit ..a tent and a doss bag

runs fine........very low, need to move kickstand onto frame behind beltdrive, speedo only reads to 60mph is off a mountain bike....need stronger shocks these standard softail ones are shit ..........but this must be the most comfortable bike I have ever built .......I agree with TSPR I can defintly feel the offset, but I never ride hands off so i will just get used to it ......so here are a few pics of the rally, yeah I know but flattys do it for me .......
thanks to you guys for your advice and critisisms and bis thanks to Scooters dude for offset spacer and jackshaft kit top dude.




as soon as the snow and ice comes around it will be time for paint and crome etc till then ....bugs in the face time ......im off a ridin

mebe

Run up a few more miles today
6 speed box is still a little tight needs more miles .... well thats my excuse
speedo died RIP so taped my sat nav onto the coil cover fer now ......too many speed cameras around where I live ..to not run a speedo
got it nice and hot and rolled it on some ........clutch slipping a little so belt cover is coming off and put a turn or two on the clutch springs .....
frame is all i thought it would be .......no flex and feels firmly planted in long 80 mph corners ........

My run to the 30th shipley rally was frought with danger see below



But its only a crime if ya gets caught .........and eatin anit cheatin well according to the terminator

Well, I am smart.... I actually followed your thread until I found the answer about the rake and stretch. I amaze myself sometimes.

Still wouldn't mind finding out where I can get one for $500 though.

Sorry but I gotta use the D word

hey hey ........I bought the frame a few years ago from Demons, I know a few dudes on here have had bad service from them butttttt ...I have bought a few large items and never had a problem.




this little bag of gubbins was missing, but I bought it sold as seen frame swingarm and rear wheel spindle, soon got the swingarm spindle and bits together.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-C...item3ef98e21d6

frame is still for sale but is $995

or pro street

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/200-C...item518da62b40

$775

I will say that this is the only frame I have ever used that I did not have to shim the motor or transmission

so keep vigilant .......there where 2 of them when I bought mine ......the other went about 30 seconds after I bought mine as I tried to buy the second frame for a bro



I am tempted to pick this up ................
