Nice! As long as none of the strands broke you'll probably be ok. I try to cut about 80-90% of the way through and then break the rest of the metal jacket off so I don't hit the cable. Its a fine line.

I got a little time today to finish up the rear hub. I had a copy of the stock sprocket mounting bracket water jet cut and tig welded it to the extended bw200 hub. Then I chucked it up in the lathe to true it up and left a shoulder to keep the sprocket concentric. I replaced the original sprocket nuts and bolts with the pain in the butt bend over retainers with nylon locking flange nuts as well. Also, the cool looking ribbed bw200 front drum is the same dimensionally as the stock tw200 rear drum and literally bolts on. Once I get this the rest of the bike done, everything will get blown apart for paint, rear hub included.

This bike is stupid.






I love it though.
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

I decided that it really does NEED a fat front tire too. Once I source a set of bw200 triples and do a bit of machining, I'll be there. I picked up another bw200 gold front wheel with a new shoe to boot.
