    I've been waiting for my top hat from local vendor after being ripped off from kings sprockets (sorry, not going to let go and all should be warned about Andrew)
    Anyways, I have together Luya rind which accept rear disk. Could I install long studs,,place sprocket on and nut down and the spacer to exact disk location? Now I know I've seen and believe have a piece ( from some furniture or something project. It has a threaded stud coming out then a shaft and on other end us then the reversed frisked thread. If this could be made to those exact specs, wouldn't this work?

    This is what I mean. Don't know about the sizes but would something like this work to mount sprocket and disk?

    Hey man I managed to get mine to fit by moving the sprocket in towards the wheel (which gave me a better chain line for my particular setup) I did this with a top hat adaptor (bicycledesigner.com) high tensile bolts and washers
    P.S. Those screw things are called stand offs image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    I guess 1st thing is to get my engine fully mounted into position and then see if and how it aligns. Looks pretty close but that's just eyeballing it. I was under assumption/ hoping that if I bought the top hat adapter with sprocket attached it woul then accept the disk and I go on my merry way! Oh, I crack my self up!!!! Who am I kidding? Lol
    If my sprocket that is directly mounted on my Luya rim, typically where the disk goes, would the correct length standoff work to hold both sprocket and disk on?

    So did you get a sprocket with the adaptor plate as one piece?
    Yeah if you bolt on the adaptor plate and use standoffs or something similar I'm quite sure the disk brake won't fit in the bike properly hard to say without seeing it with the wheel I from the back and if you can get it in there without it hitting the chain stay you would hav a real hard time trying to get the caliper mounted right.
