Although we have been working
on other peoples bikes alot lately, Aad's project has not stopped
completely. The ribbed oiltank I designed with Crime Scene Choppers
arrived and so did the new Metzeler tires. After fixing the
swingarm tabs in place with some welded in scap iron, Aad removed
the left rear downtube completely. He replaced the "S"
curved frame section with a straight section and welded the
lower casting back in place. The left rear downtube has now
moved about an inch towards the centerline of the frame, making
enough room for the rear chain to go outside of the frame instead
of inside. The swingarm mounts are still in their original place
and the rear wheel will be exactly centered in the frame. Ofcourse
we will need to fabricate a new swingarm.
