Need ideas/parts

Alex Hedrick /

Trying to get the pedal chain to line up on my jawa supreme 3 and e50 bolted to it.. the drive chain is straight and good.. but I went to put the sprockets on for pedals and I get this..

It's about an inch off..

Now I'm thinking of wider hubs to get the rear pedal sprocket where I need it, but keeping my drive side straight..

Or just making some kind of spacer to put between the rear drive sprocket and hub to kick it over at least a half inch and I can take about a half inch off the swingarm.. it should line up then.. maybe??

I have its I just didnt thread it on..

Re: Need ideas/parts

I bet you could get a multi speed bike freewheel, take off all the cogs except for the one you want and add a bunch of spacers or just weld the cog to the body.

That's not a terrible idea!! Only thing.. is it possible to get a multi speed freewheel with the right thread?

I honestly really like this one.. it's a cheap solution to this problem.

I was thinking about just pulling the trigger on treats 5 star mags with removable hubs party pack.. the rear hub looks like its wider then what I have now (90.5mm) and it just might put the freewheel where i need it (still need to shave some off of the swingarm) but that's ok!

Anyone know the width of that hub?!

Those won't help you, they aren't all that much wider than the Stock Spoke wheels, it just looks like it because the Hubs are thinner.

Even if those rims don't help with the sprocket much, They are still real nice and prolly better then spokes, and look great! so heck, If ya got the $ and the bike is all tricked out,, as it is,, DO IT!!
