    Ok guys, so I'm new here, and I'm in the process of bulding my first Friction Drive MB, my donor bike is an old Schwinn Varsity 24", and I have most of the motor and clutch problems figured out, but one of my problems, is my roller, I have a setup similar to a shaft with 2 pillow block bearings on the end, and the shaft is only about 5/8, and I need to somehow attach something to it to make it either 1 1/4 or 1 1/2, do you guys have any ideas on how to do this, and what material would be best, also I know wet weather has an effect on which material, and I'll be riding in the dry about 99% of the time, so that isn't an issue

    Any Comments or ideas are gladly appreciated, and I'll post some pics of it tomorrow

    PS sorry for the long post
