    Hmmm, 2.647:1. And, reduced weight and driveline friction power loss. But, I think a belt may rob less power than a chain. The early 1600's, with a 33/70 sprockets is 2.12:1, and the later 32/70 is 2.188:, while the 31 tooth, with a 70 rear runs 2.26:1... At 2.65, reduced weigth, and probably lower friction with the entire transfer case out, that thing really out to scoot!!!

    Yes- you are due a right side view of the bike.
    The chain will be going on very soon. Delivery of the chain was delayed by bad weather across the plains.
    The front sprocket is a 17T and the rear sprocket is 45T.
    That is 2.64:1 Ratio. I will post a photo of chain on next week

    The space that the transfer case took up is replaced with oil tank and electrics including a battery tray.
    So the overall length is almost the same..

    Yes... I understand your concern. When I sit on the bike now the seat does not go down very much at all.
    Of course when I test ride the bike I will make adjustments if needed to feel safe and comfortable.

    Hey, we're due a right side look now, to see how the whole take-the-transfer-case-out look is working, and the right side chain drive! Tell us about what size, how many teeth, sprockets you're going with!

    I'm a little concerned about the seat springs. How far down does that seat go in the back when you sit on it? Seems like if it drops at all, with your feet on forward controls you'll be pushing yourself right off the back of the seat, especially if you accelerate hard. I set up a Sportster very similar to this many years and 100 less pounds ago. Every time I punched it I ended up on the fender. As cool as the set-up looked, I had to change it for practical reasons. Lots of strain on the back and hands and arms if you are constantly having to pull yourself onto the seat.

    I'm not a bobber guy as I am more of a distance rider, but I can clearly see that that bike is a quality build. You are doing amazing work. It's one of the few bobbers that I have seen that begs me want to jump on her and blast around until I get my fill.

    Bike looks amazing man! Pumped to see a hardtail road star in the mix. Beautiful work.

    I'm an absolute sucker for the bobber style of bike... and the look of the hardtail, and all that. IF I were complain... It would only be about all the black... granted, it's Black Diamond, so my question becomes... do you have some plan so as to make it "pop"? Or, do you actually prefer the more subtle approach?
