I made that mock up bar after I took that photo.  I just put a wood-handled hammer in there for the pic  :P

I think it looks cool like that but I'm not going to have have that much rake once it's put together.



The other thing to consider apart from the rake is chain clearance - at that angle your chain will be sawing a big notch on top of your swingarm pivot

Another mini update: I got my engine cases off to Noblehops to be vapor blasted... I can't wait to see the results!
If you cant fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.
