This build is looking great man! Love the wheels. I'm wanting to go wider on my 81 XV750 with a spoke setup, It doesn't seem that you had to notch out the swingarm to get that wide of a wheel & tire setup.

Did you run into any issues there? Or maybe the width of the TR1 swingarm is more than the 750?

Looks great man!

Thanks!

On the TR1 the swing arm is not an issue at all. Depending on how far back the wheel sits in it, I think I could fit a 180-190 wheel. I believe the XV750 swing arm might have less room since the shaft takes some space. Iíd definitely measure before picking a size.

The issues Iíve had was the drum brake stay arm as it doesnít clear the wheel, but Iím having a new one with a bend in it made up. Also if I went wider than the 170 I have on now, I think I would run into chain clearance issues or having to offset the countershaft sprocket.

While I wait for a 7Ē headlight shell to arrive in the mail, I played around with using the original huge headlight. The LSL headlight brackets are the short version and I still think it sits a bit too far out. What do you guys say? Yay or nay?
