spent all day trying to figure out how to mount this engine one homemade motor mount and a little of this and that and a few suggestions from this forum and she's in



used the muffler clamps its solid but i already had drilled the hole for the mount so had to leave the nut and bolt there and use the clamps but it sure made it solid wished i could have read the post sooner i think it would have worked just fine with the muffler clamps oh well next time
now to begin the sprocket chain stuff i can tell already that i cannot use the fatty tire just not enough clearance same thing happened with my rat fink had to use a 24x2.125 so there is no rubbing on the tire thats the latest update to my current project larry ca

Hey, you're coming right along 8)

Here's a pic of a couple of Nirve Switchblades a friend from Canada put motors on. He made the tanks that are mounted below the top tubes. I've been trying to find his website. I think he's got more pics of details.

Foyeburger if you lower the motor and move it forword you can add a small jackshaft to it to fit any sixe tire

you can get #41 10 tooth jackshaft cogs at masterlowrider dot com

Larry, great job on your mount. I think I mentioned in another thread that I have a Deviate that is very similar to your Switchblade so I am watching your build closly. To get around your tire you could also offset your engine about half an inch on the drive side and that should clear the tire. I'm thinking when I do mine I will mount my engine further forward for a better look and have a short jack shaft to go around the tire.

Dave, awsome choice in bikes. Choppers US is a great company and a pleasure to deal with. Let us know when you have this bike and how you build it up. I'm sure you know this but others here may be interested in the fact that the rear tire on that bike is a 24X4 that has not been released to the public as of yet. Chop on...Kelly

dude, if you're for real i'd sure like to get ahold of one of those...are you saying it's possible, if i pay shipping? my next frame will be retro also, but long instead of tall (i'm 6'5"), i'll prolly wind up using the engine and bike parts i have now, but having that mount available would make finding the right frame a whole bunch easier :)

That looks like the mount that I've had in mind for my Deviate. If you have another I'd like to take a look at it. Where is the engine placment with this? Do you have any pics of the actual mount and? Thanks in advance...Kelly
