Standard wheel lead for a hack is 8-12 inches.
It depends on the size of the rear wheel, how you want weight distributions, and how much tire scrub you want.  Standard location is at the leading edge of your tug's rear wheel.  On a mini-bike with a 14" wheel, that is no more than 7".  Race hacks run as much as 15".

that's true. I forgot how small that XR actually is.

Hopefully that last bit of fabrication before paint.  I want a shock that can handle at least 200lbs in the hack.  Luckily, I have a pair of cheap CB550 shocks that I have zero intention of running on a bike.  Perfect.

Somehow I missed Part 1 of this project. Now following with great interest.

This is my bro's XR80 from when we were kids. I think my mom and dad got it for him the summer of '82. I've been trying to motivate him to do something with it (see spark plug taped to grip) but he's 3000 miles away and has a lot going on. Although the bike sat for 30 years, the tank looks rust-free and I bet it could be ready to ride in an afternoon. So these are popular as pit bikes?



I'd also love to make a mini sidecar for my CT like the one you're building. But first things, first.

I love it.  I think any of the small cc Hondas are popular pit bikes, and the twin shock ones have some special love.  But, the 100s are more popular than the 80s.  It's way easier to get aftermarket bits for the 100s, plus the lighter cranks and more horsies.  I have a 100 engine that has a trashed bottom end, but a good crank and a good top end.  One of these days, I will pillage it for the crank and top end and maybe bore the 80 engine case going in here for a 100 sleeve to convert it to a 100.

A couple of swage tube struts. I think Iíll have to make a couple clearance adjustments once the motor is in, but this is basically it for the hack.
