Hello there and welcome to the site!
Nice project you have going there.
4 months ago, I came close to killing myself- accidentally on my K5 Liter Bike- thanks to State Farm and having been fully insured, with medical insurance- you'd think I had my medical bills covered?
AND- the fact I AM a medical provider- a PA-C; makes no difference. I keep telling the people I am arguing with on the phone that I can't believe my patients have to go thru this crap.
I did use the money to buy another low mileage, neat mint K5 Liter! AND bought the salvage back, which I'm fising and selling also.
Frame/wheels NOT bent- long story
Anyways, I have treated MANY- 4 wheeler accident victims of various injuries- minor AND major-
perhaps the belief that they are safer on 4 wheels? Maybe they are, and I'm not in any way trying to influence your decision- a sane one btw.
You have a really nice project going there- just be careful 'cause you strapped a 'rocket' to it to power it!
Stick around, and for sure post pics of your progress!
* Edit- to answer your question- you already have the sprocket mounted on the Axle. Any idea what size/pitch is that, or was on the bike you're using as donor? It's often stamped on the chain and/or sprockets. If you'vce aligned the countersprocket right, should link up? Are you using a 'jackshaft', like the wider rear tired bikes have to? How will you keep the chain tightened?
I agree that the 'bushing' in our wheels is there for a reason. You could get by without it.
Have you figured out any gearing? With the smaller wheels, you'll be winding up really quick
I think we need more pics too!
