The chain tensioner is slick.  I dig that it even uses the cool Peralta wheel.   I hope this bike makes it to Barber.

Thanks, homie.  I have every intention of bringing this to Barber.

It's a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner.
Sweet, when are you starting on that :D

Haha.  2033, or next summer. My brother and I both have one from my dad.  His was the one dad drove in high school.  Mine is one he traded for a flatbed of creosote fencing lumber in 1981.  Not having a garage and my mother sick of a bunch of cars, boats and campers littering the property got my bro and I an early inheritance. It sat under a black walnut tree untouched for 30 years so, needless to say, it needs a lot of work.

Great story, and whether it's next summer or 2033, I'm looking forward to it. Always been a Mopar fan, unfortunately we didn't get any of those in Australia,
Apologies for the thread hijack..

I've never made a tensioner....chain wont wander on the wheel since there's no grooves?

It needs to be wide enough to keep it on the wheel, and the wheel will develop a groove that keeps the chain inline.  Some guys on the Hondachopper forum say a tensioner is noisy or no good.  We'll see.  One guy used a sprocket tensioner and claims it makes the chain wear faster. He went to a static tensioner with an adjustment. The other guy decided to go without a tensioner at all.  So, neither was like mine.  The spring doesn't have a crazy rate.  In fact it's not much at all.  The wheel is really to keep the chain from slapping around, much like an idler pulley on a car.  They don't exert a whole lot of force on the belt, and neither will this tensioner.
