convert driveshaft 2 jack-shaft or extend driveshaft
This is for my Honda CX650 chopper project... I want to build a custom frame, and to be able to pull off the frame I have in mind, I either have to figure out how to extend the driveshaft and swingarm to use the existing final drive and wheel (which look really cool) or, I have to convert to a jackshafted, sprocket or cogged belt drive, which I am open to, but it will take some thought and doing to get the final drive ratio correct. The benefit of the Jackshaft set-up is that I can build whatever frame I have in mind, and choose whatever wheels to compliment the project. ANY and all ideas or links that could help me, or if someone has already been down this road, let me know, PLEASE!
