    Unless you plan on doing something fancy (like running the engine on the pedal chain), Vader's rear disc brake will have to go... I'll take it if you don't want it ;-)

    How come there is no poll option for "both"?

    Sorry augidog, I will use it from now on.

    Bill, still got Vader and it's still for sale.

    If I were to motorize Vader I would also have to change the tank...that might kill the look of the bike.

    Both huh...that does sound like a good idea.

    I will see if I can find a decent picture of the jack shaft transmission for you.

    I still say vader and keep the tank :p
    you could camoflauge a working tank somewhere if you couldn't hide it in original 8)
    or, you could do both and then let us pick which one we love more :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I'd say start from scratch, your bikes are impressive, wild, and beautiful.

    By starting fresh, you can beef up stress areas, leave room for adjustment,
    eliminate weak links, like idlers that loosen, and touch spokes . When done, you'd have a bike you could drop motor in, and go with confidence. To hack up one of your creations is of questionable logic.
