Made brackets for the swing arm, 1/4" plate with slotted holes. This will allow the chain's tension to be adjusted for slack as the chain stretches over time, the axle can be moved to the rear.

Thanks guys, appreciate the comments. It's moving along still.
Long day, tried this first, much too soft & too much movement, tire hit the rear frame!

Plan B, so... I cut it apart, drilled the swing arm & welded in sleeves (12mm X 15MM), then re-set the top hangers

Made the bracket for the rear brake setup. Should work well enough.

Ended up making a stand for the build yesterday. I'd been working on a 3' tall welding table, but there are some things which need a different height. Got some 2x4's, a sheet of 1/2" CDX ($53.00 here, ouch) & a 2' x 7' sheet of 16 gauge steel for the deck. The size is 24" wide X 7' long X 20" tall. Makes working a bit easier, I can use a small wheeled stool to roll around to get to different stuff. Still lots to figure out & do...

Will do a video, but we're not there yet! New induction for the air filter move, the factory one is restricted & sits up a bit too high, so...

If after it's together you feel it needs a little more on the engine side hit me up and I can get you with some guys that go extreme on these engines. I use to race performance karts and some guys would use these engines and get 50-60hp plus on dyno before they would hit the track.
You hide your conversion and call it stealth. I put mine out in the open and give it a beer.
